Crawley Firefighters Postpone Charity Walk

Crawley firefighters have postponed a charity walk which was due to take place tomorrow. 

Twenty firefighters planned to walk from Crawley to Brighton carrying training dummies in aid of two charities.

The hot weather would have made it difficult for the fundraisers to socially distance due to the large number of people expected to visit the coast. 

The hike will be rearranged at a later date.
