ONE lane is blocked and traffic is delayed on the A31 after a camper van lost one of its wheels.

The converted Ford Transit appears to have damaged the road and has its offside rear wheel missing.

Police were called to the scene, near the Azalea roundabout at St Leonards on the westbound carriageway, at 9.35am.

A spokesman said one lane is blocked and recovery is currently being arranged for the camper van.

A woman in her 50s from Warwickshire is 'shaken but unhurt', police say.
