Police are searching for a half-naked woman seen by the side of a major road in Sussex in the middle of the night.

Two drivers reported seeing a woman in her early 20s with dark hair wandering, either naked or semi-naked on the A27 near Hove at about 04:00 BST.

The area between the Hangleton Link Road and Devils Dyke junctions was searched by officers, but the woman has not been traced.

A Sussex Police helicopter has now been deployed to help with the search.
