One vehicle is believed to be involved, and emergency services are at the scene.

An eyewitness said the road had been closed by police and traffic was being diverted.

A police spokesman said an elderly driver had come off the road, and might have minor cuts and bruises, but it was not being treated as a serious accident.

Traffic reports suggest it is the roundabout which connects the A259 Goring Road and George V Avenue, next to the Toby Carvery - but photos taken at the scene show it happened along the seafront.
