According to Sussex Police, the driver, a woman in her 20s, suffered only minor injuries but 'it could have been far worse'.

Sergeant Dan Pitcher said: "We would urge all motorists to take care on the roads around Sussex, particularly in the icy conditions when some areas can be unpredictable.

"Listen out for road noise - if this disappears at any stage, it may mean you are driving on ice. "
