Huge lorries sent on diversion through Worthing to get to pool site

TWO 100ft lorries caused traffic chaos as they were sent on a wild goose chase through Lancing and Worthing.

The lorries, from Lancashire, were delivering metal for the new swimming pool, in Brighton Road, on Tuesday (June 26).

But the drivers were told their lorries were facing the wrong direction to back into the swimming pool’s site.

According to eye witness David Ball, the drivers were then told to continue down Brighton Road and turn left at Steyne Gardens, back in the direction of the pool.

But when they continued down Steyne Gardens, the drivers realised it was impossible for them to turn left.

The moment was captured by David, who had been in the Ardington Hotel, before rushing back to The Warnes, in The Steyne, to grab his wife’s camera.
