Furious motorists took to the County Times Facebook page to express their frustration as delays of up to six hours are feared.

“Not even Christmas or a peak shopping day at Tesco...take a flask, sandwiches and a sleeping bag.”

Tracey Bruce Turner fumed: “I couldn’t believe they are doing more road works when the other part of the road is closed off! Absolutely ludicrous.”

Sacha Jeanes added: “We were caught up in it. A staff member handed us some water.

“Our frozen food was defrosted once we got home. Have never seen it so bad.”

Emma Skeates said: “It’s a disgrace. What a mess, and it could all have been thought through and done so differently.”

Heather Heaps added it took her 50 minutes to get out of the car park.

She added: “I was so stressed because I had a hospital appointment to go to.”

Beverley Smith told how it took her 90 minutes to get her car washed.

Alison McMullan said: “I got completely lost trying to get into BBH last week. Took me half an hour to do a 2 minute journey.”

Tesco and West Sussex County Council have been approached for comment.
