However, motorists are advised that the one-way lane closure westbound on the A27 near Shoreham-by-Sea will remain in place this weekend, with speed restrictions of 40mph.

Detective Chief Inspector Carwyn Hughes, senior identification manager for Sussex Police, said: “Our officers and staff have been meticulous and have worked hard over the past three weeks to find answers for the victims’ families. We have now finished work on the A27, however our investigation continues.”

The screens will stay up on the roadside until further notice for reclamation work on the land to be completed.
