An elderly woman died after two cars collided head-on in East Sussex.

The 73-year-old woman from Kent was a passenger in a red Chevrolet Aveo travelling south on the A21 at Kent Street, near Sedlescombe.

It was in collision with a silver Citroen C3 Picasso travelling north, shortly before 11:15 BST on Wednesday.

The 74-year-old male driver of the Chevrolet was seriously injured, while the driver and the occupants of the Citroen all suffered minor injuries.

The A21 was closed between Sedlescombe and St Leonards for nearly six hours following the collision.

Police have appealed for anyone who saw what happened or noticed either vehicle being driven shortly before the crash to come forward.
