This video is something many drivers have been longing to see for a long time.

The opening and completion of Cheals Rounabout has been a hotly contested matter for debate since work began and traffic chaos ensued.

Video sent in by reader Nick.

Whilst the video is tongue in cheek is does show just what work has been going on and how the new filter lane should now allow traffic to flow more easily.

Comments on social media following the video show the frustration that the work has had on local people and drivers with one saying:

“The most pointless bit of road work ever it’s no different just has a bit of concrete between the lanes watch it make no difference to traffic.”

In a press statement Cllr Lamb says that Sussex Police have lost 32.3% of their funding from central government, leaving local policing in a weakened state.

Speaking about the state of policing in Crawley, Cllr Lamb said:
