THE JUNCTION on the A27 at Chichester for the A286 is currently shut, following a two-vehicle collision.

Police were called at 4.40pm to the crash on the A286 Birdham Road between Pump Bottom Farm - the venue for Blues on the Farm - and Crouchers Hotel and Restaurant.

A man and a woman have been taken to hospital.

Initial reports said people were trapped in the vehicles, but West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has confirmed everyone was out of the vehicles upon their arrival.

One car is in a ditch.

The road has since been made safe, however police had been forced to close the road at the A286 junction with the A27 at the Stockbridge roundabout.
