A 30-year-old man from Great Waldingfield has died more than a week after sustaining serious head injuries in a collision in Sussex.

Christopher Alderton, of Green Acre, died in Hurstwood Park Neurological Centre in Haywards Heath following the crash on January 14, which took place on the northbound carriageway of the A24 at Dial Post south of Horsham.

His blue Nissan Micra was travelling northbound on the A24 when it collided with a Renault recovery truck waiting to turn right near the Old Barn Nurseries at around 6:40pm that evening.

The 48-year old Worthing man driving the recovery truck was unhurt.
