A Crawley mother and her three-year-old child had a lucky escape this morning after a window at a town centre shop smashed inches from them.

The large pane of glass at DW Sports on the corner of The Martletts had already been weakened after vandals had attacked it during the night.

As winds increased, because of the incoming Storm Brendan, the window could not cope and broke before an emergency maintenance team could arrive.

Only seconds earlier a young mother and her child had been walking past the window and escaped from the shards of glass hitting them.

A spokesperson for DW Fitness First said:

“Unfortunately late last night the window of DW Sports was vandalised.

This was noticed first thing this morning and the emergency maintenance team was called. Ahead of the team arriving, the wind unfortunately caused the glass to break further.

Thankfully nobody was hurt and DW Fitness First apologises for any distress caused.

The window has now been boarded up to ensure it is safe and secure.” 


Reminder to Crawley punters to maintain rules as three pubs in the UK forced to close after customers test positive for coronavirus



It was a popular time across Crawley as customers flocked to the many pubs that reopened, welcoming punters back in for their drinks and to socialise – if with somewhat social distancing rules being enforced.

But now concerns are immediately being raised after three pubs in the UK announced they were forced to close almost immediately after customers reported that they had tested positive for coronavirus.

The three pubs in West Yorkshire, Somerset and Gosport all reported they were closed again after they were informed of customers who had been to the pub since they reopened and who had now tested positive for the virus.

It comes just after lockdown restrictions has begun to be eased allowing pubs and hairdressers to begin allowing customers back.

Photos from across Crawley showed punters visiting their favourite establishments on Saturday with social distancing rules being followed, but these reports from pubs across the country could be a reminder that the country is not free of the virus and every precaution that can be taken still needs to be adhered to.

The three pubs that closed have said that they are now undertaking a deep clean and hope to reopen very soon.
