Also in today’s paper a man who died in a Horsham crash has been named by police, a defibrillator has been donated to the town by a man who suffered a heart attack, new information reveals reported rapes are at a two year high in the district, plans to give a popular Horsham pub a new ‘lease of life’ have been approved plus a double page spread as the district remembers those who have been lost in conflicts including the heart-warming story of a standard bearer who collapsed moments before a Remembrance Sunday service but was determined to continue.
