“An 18-year-old man walked out of Favourite Chicken when he was approached by a group of around 10 men of Asian appearance. The victim was then assaulted and suffered a minor stab wound above the hip and took himself to hospital.”

Detective Sergeant Dave Morton said: “We are appealing to anyone who witnessed this assault to come forward to us with information.

“We are committed to targeting people supplying class A drugs in this area and we want to reassure everyone that their safety is our priority.

“Criminality that puts people’s lives at risk is never acceptable and it’s vital that the community pulls together to help us deal with those responsibilities.

“No one knows their neighbours better than residents themselves and we all need to work together to make Crawley a safe place.”

There will be changes to the days some sites are open. Burgess Hill, Chichester, Worthing, and Crawley will open for six days a week during the winter months. Chichester will close on Tuesdays and Burgess Hill, Worthing, and Crawley will close on Thursdays.

Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said:

“The changes are based around the demand for services at different times of the year.

“Reducing opening hours during the quieter winter allows us to keep sites open for longer in the summer months when demand is at its highest.”
