Dozens of classic cars have been driven across Sussex in the first Jaguar South Downs Run.

The vehicles started in Arundel in West Sussex and drove through villages in the new South Downs National Park before arriving in Eastbourne.

The cars, some dating from the 1970s, passed through Storrington, Hurstpierpoint, Lewes, Glynde, East Dean and Birling Gap.

They were then displayed on the East Sussex town's Western Lawns.

The run, by members of the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club from all over the UK, featured models including the E-Type and MK2 saloons similar to those used in the Inspector Morse TV series.

The Jaguar run was the first motoring event to drive through the new national park, which officially came into being on 31 March.
