K2 Crawley forced to shut as flash flood creates hazardous conditions

Published

K2 Crawley has had to close its doors this morning as torrential rain caused flooding in pipe work overhead that flooded into the centre.

With the worry of electrical fire caused by the water it was deemed unsafe to open the centre to the public.

West Sussex Fire service were called sending two crews to deal with the incident.

Staff could be seen trying to mop up large patches of settled water from the flooding. Some customers unable to use the centre were making the most of using the on-site cafe while the incident was dealt with.

A rare sight of the K2 Crawley car park during normal operating hours.

Stuart Mills, area contract manager at Everyone Active, said:

“I can confirm that K2 Crawley Leisure Centre experienced a water leak this morning, resulting in the need to close the centre today. (Tuesday 24 September).

“We currently working to fix the issues and expect to open as normal later today.

“I would urge our members to check social media for any updates and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

Latest reports suggest that they are trying to reopen the centre around lunchtime but that visitors should keep an eye on their social media for confirmation of when it is back open.
