The A24 in Horsham remains closed and train services have been disrupted after a lorry collided with a railway bridge this morning (February 14)

Sussex Police said the A24 northbound near Christ's Hospital in Horsham was closed after a lorry struck a railway bridge. Network Rail for Kent and Sussex tweeted at 1pm apologising to Southern Rail passengers on the line from Horsham to Arundel, after a bridge over the A24 was struck by an excavator on a low-loader and it couldn't open the line until an inspector had been to see it.
