Jane Etheridge, from North Horsham, discovered the dust covering cars at her home yesterday and this morning.

No one yet knows what has caused the phenomenon.

Last year, people across the country were affected when cars were covered in a mysterious red dust - later thought to have been sand particles blown in from the Sahara Desert following storms.
