Traffic mayhem this morning as wet weather brings accidents across Crawley

Slow down and keep your distance from the car infront is the morning message as delays occur across Crawley.



Traffic was held back on the A2011 to allow for the recovery truck to work.

The A2011, Crawley Avenue was closed westbound this morning following an accident.

Police had to close the road in order for a recovery truck to be able to work.

This has had a knock on effect across the area heading right back to the A264 near Felbridge.

The M23 did not escape either as both the A2011 accident and one on the A23 near Handcross meant traffic was stationary northbound from Pease Pottage up to Junction 10.

With more wet weather forecast for the rest of the day drivers are being asked to take extra precaution and keep their speeds down.

There are also multiple reports of flooding across the town, particularly on Hazelwick Avenue.
