Emergency services were called to a fire at a flat in Warren Drive about 5.38pm on Wednesday 11 July, 2018.

They carried out CPR on a 53-year-old woman but despite their best efforts, she was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

She has been identified as Marie Denise Toulsee of Tussock Close, Crawley. The victim’s family have been updated and are being supported by specialist officers.

Two local men who were also inside the property when police arrived, were arrested on suspicion of murder and released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Following new evidence, Louis Navarre, 56, a cleaner, of Blackwater Lane, Crawley, was re-arrested on suspicion of murder on Thursday 7 November and has since been charged with this offence.

He appeared before Staines Magistrates’ Court on Friday 8 November and has since been remanded in custody to appear for a preliminary hearing at Lewes Crown Court on Monday 11 November.

The second suspect – a 38-year-old man – voluntarily attended police custody and was released without charge. He will face no further action.

WARNING: From Monday 18th Nov Tushmore Roundabout Roadworks begin for 7 WEEKS!

The work is being carried out by Southern Gas Networks.

If you drive around Tushmore Roudabout then you need to be prepared to either give youself plenty of extra time OR to avoid the areas completely for the next 7 weeks.

SGN is replacing the old metal gas pipes with new plastic ones to ensure a reliable supply.

The works were agreed with West Sussex County Council and will commence on Monday 18th Nov and last approximately 7 weeks.

The work is being done in three phases with the first phase involving reducing the roundabout down to one lane with all approaching roads also reduced to a single lane.

SGN has listed below the full information for each phase:

Phase one:

We’ll begin working at Tushmore Gyratory roundabout on Monday 18 November. For safety, we’ll need to reduce the roundabout to one lane, with all roads approaching the roundabout also reduced to one lane.

Phase two:

Our engineers will then begin upgrading our pipe in the A23 Crawley Avenue at its junction with the Tushmore Gyratory roundabout. We’ll increase the roundabout and approaching roads from one lane to two lanes. However, the eastbound carriageway of the A23 Crawley Avenue will need to remain reduced to one lane.

Phase three:

We’ll then progress to carry out network upgrades near to Ifield Roundabout. For everyone’s safety, the eastbound carriageway will be reduced to one lane on its approach to Ifield Roundabout from Ifield Community College and between Ifield Roundabout and Tushmore Gyratory roundabout, too. The existing traffic lights and pedestrian crossings will remain in place during our project. The bus lane which runs north/south along the A23/A2219 London Road at Tushmore roundabout will be unaffected by this work.
