TRAFFIC was blocked on part of the A27 after a camper van tyre burst.

The Volkswagen van was on the westbound carriageway of the A27, about half a mile away from the Eastern Road, when its tyre blew out, at 2.30pm.

It caused the vehicle to roll over two lanes and blocked them.

The road reopened at 15.38pm. One person suffered minor injuries.
