Police are appealing for witnesses following a collision between two cars in East Grinstead.

The collision took place on the A264 Holtye Road, East Grinstead at around 2.25pm on Friday.

According to police, the driver of a red Daihatsu, a 62-year-old woman from Cranbrook, suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to hospital where she remains.

The driver of a grey Kia, a 44-year-old woman from Tonbridge, suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution but has since been discharged, police said. They added that this was also the case for her passenger, a 14-year-old boy from Tonbridge.

The road was closed until around 8.30pm on Friday for recovery work.
