More than 300 people got a chance to question Horsham’s parliamentary candidates at a general election hustings event.

The event - at Brighton Road Baptist Church on Monday - was organised by Horsham Churches Together.

A spokesman said: “Horsham Parliamentary candidates were grilled on Brexit and climate impact, along with a host of other subjects from increased foodbank use to school funding.”
