An arson attack destroyed thousands of pounds worth of property belonging to Crawley Town football club, leaving their kit van a burnt shell.

In today’s Crawley Observer a bride went on the run before her wedding. Gemma Berrill started her special day in her own particular style on Saturday by donning her running gear - complete with veil - to join parkrunners in Tilgate Park before later marrying hubby Jon at Horsham Register Office. “I made sure I was running in Crawley and he was running in Horsham because it’s unlucky to see each other before the wedding,” said Gemma, 31.

Also in today’s Observer major changes planned for children’s services in West Sussex have sparked ‘serious concerns’ from a campaign group.
