UPDATE - Closed stretch of A24 re-opened

12 December 2012

Police have re-opened a three-mile stretch of the A24 southbound in the Horsham area which was closed earlier today (Wednesday 12 December).
 
Treacherous black ice on the road going south from the Robin Hood roundabout just north of Broadbridge Heath to the Hop Oast roundabout north of Southwater, Horsham caused at least 12 vehicles to skid and crash from 9.45am. Police closed the stretch of road.
 
No one was seriously hurt. A few drivers had minor injuries and damage to their cars. The northbound lane of the A24 remained open but traffic was heavy.
 
Police are advising drivers on this stretch of road to drive slowly.
