Fire at Tesla Dealership at County Oak, Crawley

Our reporter, Joe Exler, visited the scene of a large fire at the Tesla dealership in County Oak, Crawley, earlier today (Saturday, 2nd March 2019).

Around 10 fire appliances attended the scene. The fire was controlled well, and on Joe’s arrival, the emergency services were dampening down hotspots and making way for fire investigators.

Joe spoke with Neil Munday live from the scene.

Equine flu crisis strikes at British horse racing

Chrissy Muir caught up with local Lingfield Racecourse member, Ian Byford today to talk about the current state of affairs in the Horse Racing world which is greatly affected by the ban on racing at the present time.

**UPDATE 11th Feb 2019**
Since this story was published, there has been a late evening development.
The BHA have announced a managed return to racing imposing strict bio security measures. The decision to resume racing was taken in a “controlled, risk-managed manner” and supported by an industry veterinary committee said the British Horseracing Authority.
