Motorists face much disruption this morning (Monday January 28) after a number of collisions and traffic light failures.

The A272 in Shipley has been closed westbound between Buckbarn Crossroads and the B2139 Coolham Road junction after an accident.

Meanwhile, the A281 in Cowfold is closed and queueing traffic in both directions between the Barleycroft junction and the B2116 junction, because of an accident and ice.

An earlier traffic light failure was reported on the A24 Worthing Road in West Grinstead at Buckbarn Crossroads, but has now been repaired.

Temporary traffic lights are causing congestion around Horsham railway station including Harwood Road.
