Extraordinary tales of community spirit have emerged as the ice thaws from yet another bout of extreme weather in the Horsham district this year.
One man described feeling like a local hero after unblocking the A24 with his neighbour, a wheelbarrow full of grit and a spade on Monday night.
Meanwhile a Pease Pottage pub was transformed into a refuge for those stranded by the snow.
The landlady and her mother even gave up their beds and slept on the sofa to give travellers some rest.
