23-year-old man arrested in connection with Three Bridges hit-and-run



A man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run which occurred in Haslett Avenue East, Three Bridges, about 6.10pm on Wednesday 27 May.

Three people were crossing the road from Three Bridges railway station when one of them – a 28-year-old local man – was struck by a car, believed to be a white Audi, which failed to stop at the scene.

He was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where it was confirmed he sustained a fractured rib. He was later discharged.

On Thursday morning (28 May), a 23-year-old man from Crawley handed himself in to police, and was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop after a road traffic collision. He has been interviewed and released under investigation, pending further enquiries.

Police are still urging anyone who witnessed the collision or saw a white Audi being driven in the area around that time – or anyone with dash cam, CCTV or mobile phone footage of the incident – to come forward.

Crawley restaurant, Mio Gusto launches 50% off for residents and front line workers



Whilst COVID-19 still causes disruption across the town, one local restaurant owner has taken the decision to offer residents and front line workers a huge 50% off on their menu.

While the government launched the ‘Eat out to Help out’ scheme, the new Mio Gusto was still under renovation which meant potential customers were unable to take advantage of the scheme. Now owner Yashar Koksal, owner of Mio Gusto, has taken the decision to give his customers an even better scheme to promote and offer their whole menu at an even greater discount of 50% off all food (drinks not included).

Crawley Mayor Francis Guidera officially opens Mio Gusto.

The Pizzeria has already gained rave reviews from customers since it was opened by Crawley Mayor Francis Guidera.

Executive Chef Yasar Koksal is working alongside his Head Chef Francesco Furrielo to create the exciting menu.

But Mio Gusto is a much more exciting concept than a traditional Pizzeria. It’s elegant menu has taken customers by storm with dishes you would usually expect to find in a Michelin Star venue.

The relaxed setting of the restaurant based underneath Rhythm Nightclub at 107 High Street, Crawley, has been completely redesigned with an elegant style that, even with the social distancing rules, still makes you feel comfortable and engaged with the ambience.

Mr Koksal said:

“It is vital that we keep our local economy moving and don’t just give up. This is why I am launching this offer to everyone.”

The offer is open to any customers and applies to all their food, starters, mains and deserts.

Mr Koksal said that the offer will be reviewed for residents after two weeks, but will remain in place for all front-line workers till the end of the year.

Mio Gusto is open seven days a week from 12pm to 10pm with last orders at 9.

Sittings are available at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 8pm.
