Sussex Police are warning motorists to take care on the roads across the county today (Tuesday, 27) as snow continues.
Officers said there have been around 20 collisions reported across the county since midnight, which have all been damage-only.
However, police are appealing to drivers to consider their driving style in the conditions, which has led to amber weather warnings, and dozens of schools being closed today.
There was also an incident in Heathfield, where a Nissan Almera reportedly came off the road, hitting a bush and ‘Give Way’ sign.
People have also been taking to social media to share their experience of the snow this morning, including Bexhill and Battle MP Huw Merriman.

Chief Inspector Warren Franklin said:
“There has been a fair amount of snow, more is forecast, and the temperature is hovering at or just below freezing, so you should expect the roads to be slippery in places, even where there has been gritting.
“Please consider if your journey is really necessary, and if so, please adapt your driving to the conditions and allow much longer for your trip.
“Spring might be just around the corner, but while it may be warm and cosy inside your car, it’s cold, icy and potentially very hazardous outside it.
Meanwhile, a total of 62 schools have been closed in East Sussex today, along with a small number in West Sussex.
A small number of others that have opened are now asking parents to collect their children, and are planning to close this afternoon.
There has also been delays to public transport, and passengers on buses and rail services are being advised to plan ahead.
Gatwick Airport said they are operating normally, but are still asking passengers to check their flight status, and allow extra journey time to the airport.
However, some people are feeling more positive about the weather, including Drusillas Zoo Park in Alfriston.
