Mystery surrounds an incident where an elderly man was hospitalised after coming into contact with a ‘poisonous’ chemical.

In today’s County Times, the chemical spill is investigated, MPs have demanded Southern Rail improve their inconsistent train service, and the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity have lost a significant source of funding for next year.

Tributes have been paid to a woman who died after a crash in Storrington, drivers had a lucky escape after a tree fell on three moving cars, and a Horsham town centre shop has been commended for paying all its staff at least a ‘living wage’.

Meanwhile, a court heard that a woman harassed her neighbour and repeatedly made malicious allegations over a two-year period, the former High Sheriff of West Sussex has applied for permission to build 14 homes, and broadcaster and former Radio One DJ ‘Diddy’ David Hamilton has his say on the rail service saga.
