Reports on social media suggest a ‘heavy police presence’ is in the Barley Close area of the town near to the railway station.

One person said: “Sounded like shots fired by police in #Crawley #westsussex at a block of flats near me on Brighton rd - Barley house. Heavy police presence.”

But another eyewitness reportedly said it was not shots fired, but rather a door being ‘opened’ by the police’s ‘big red key’.

Sussex Police have been approached for comment.
