Police have issued a statement after a two-hour closure of a main road.
The A27 was closed in both directions today between Patcham and Falmer, a key route for traffic to and from Brighton.
A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “We were called just before 2pm today to a report of a man in distress near the bridge over the A27 at the Coldean Lane / Ditchling Rise junction in Hollinbury.”
Both the east and west lanes were closed.
The spokeswoman added: “Officials have attempted to negotiate with the man.
“After two hours, the man came down safely and the road was reopened. We would like to thank the drivers for their patience while we worked to resolve the incident.”
While the road has reopened, there has been some impact to traffic in the area.
