Drunks fighting in Tilgate is saddest thing you will see all week but is it a social statement for Crawley?



No-one ever wants to see a fight going on particularly not in the middle of the day with families around.

But a local resident with her friend caught on camera one of the strangest fights as several reportedly drunk indviduals decided to ‘have a go’ at each other. The video was posted on social media and has had at time of publishing almost 400 shares.

All ‘participants’ appear to be heavily intoxicated and older members of the public with one carrying what looks like nunchucks, swinging them around wildly while people drive past unaware.

In one heart stopping moment one of the men almost gets run over but the driver was able to brake in time.

The resident who asked to remain anonymous said:

“I had just come out of the doctors and with my friend we saw this fight going on outside Tilgate shops. It was hilarious as they were all clearly drunk but unfortunately this is what is being seen more and more around the town.”

Watch the video below, WARNING, viewer discretion advised.

Whilst no police were called to the scene it has been alleged that one of those involved was visited by police later that day.

But whilst some will find the video sad and other amusing it does bring about a bigger question about what is happening around the town on a daily basis and how is it going to be addressed.

With reports of robberies in broad daylight and assaults in supermarkets does more need to be done by the authorities or by the council?

News was released in the past week of more police officers to be employed country wide and only this week the Police Commissioner announced more money for addressing those who commit crimes. But this does nothing to address what is happening right now on the streets in this town.

Sussex Police have been approached for comment.


BREAKING NEWS: Labour lose control of Crawley Council after councillor jumps ship

With no planned elections till May ’21 the council is now left with 17 Labour Councillors, 17 Conservative Councillors and 1 Independent.

This move is most certainly going to have a huge impact on the voting situation at the council.

Councillor Sudan has now published her resignation letter explaining her decision here.

CN24 tried to contact Councillor Sudan for additional comment but was unable to at time of publication.
