September 7th, 2017.

The A259 South Coast Road is still closed in both directions between Malines Avenue and Dorothy Avenue, following the discovery of a WW2 bomb on a building site yesterday afternoon.


Haven travellers aiming towards Brighton are advised to take an alternative route.

Late on Wednesday night Chief Superintendent Nick May, of Sussex Police, said: " The various agencies involved are doing all they can to resolve the situation as swiftly and as safely as possible. "We recognise that it has meant considerable upset for residents - including children and senior citizens – who have had to abandon their homes at short notice, and for motorists faced with delays and diversions to their journeys.

"We are grateful for people’s patience and understanding in exceedingly trying circumstances, and thank them for their forbearance."Our primary concern throughout has had to be their safety and well-being."

Among those supporting the emergency services have been Explosive Ordnance Disposal experts, and officials from town, district and county councils.
