Two cars were involved in a collision in Horsham on Saturday afternoon (January 3), forcing the road to close.

The collision between a Mercedes Sprinter and a Land Rover Defender driven by a 22-year-old man from Crawley happened on the B2237 Worthing Road at about 1.20pm.

Police said a man was arrested for drink-driving offences.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police said: “A 54-year-old man from Battle was taken into custody where he subsequently provided a negative breath test and was released.

“The driver of the Mercedes van was uninjured, but was taken to Worthing Hospital as he was feeling unwell. He later discharged himself.”
