A woman from Bexhill has undergone surgery after a car crashed into launderette in the town centre on Friday (June 10), according to police.

A silver Jaguar X-Type travelling west in Parkhurst Road at 5pm appeared to lose control, overshoot the junction into Sackville Road and crashed into two other cars and a bicycle before hitting the laundrette where the 56-year-old woman was inside.

She suffered serious arm injuries and back injuries and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital for treatment. She underwent surgery on Saturday.

The 81-year-old woman, also from Bexhill, driving the Jaguar was treated for minor injuries.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to email or call 101 quoting serial 1204 of 10/06.
