The lights in West Street came free from their mountings and were hanging low over the pavement this morning, April 29.

They are thought to have fallen overnight.

But the area was cordoned off and contractors soon repaired the illuminations, a Horsham District Council spokeswoman said.

She added: “We have looked at CCTV footage in West Street and have found no evidence as to why the lights fell down.

“They have now been fully repaired by the Council’s contractor free of charge.”
