A series of lift failures in Horsham town centre have left shoppers and drivers angry.

Vandals have targeted a lift in Swan Walk shopping centre while two other lifts in The Forum car park have been out of action since Monday - for the umpteenth time.

Horsham District Council posted a notice on Twitter yesterday stating: “We’re sorry to say that the Medwin Walk lift located in Swan Walk has been vandalised and is therefore out of service until further notice.

“Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused while we fix the lift and thank you for your patience.”

Meanwhile both elevators in The Forum multi-storey car park are currently not working and have been fenced off. Both elevators were last out of action just weeks ago and sparked outrage from motorists who took to social media to vent their anger.

Horsham District Council has been approached to comment.
