Police have launched an appeal for witnesses to a serious collision that closed the M23 yesterday (Thursday February 4).

The incident happened near junction 10A near Maidenbower.

The motorway was closed southbound for recovery work but reopened at around 2.30pm.

Sergeant Bryan McCartney said: “We would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened.

“Witnesses can email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Illinois.”
