Shoreham Airshow Crash


The A27 at Shoreham has partially re-opened on Sunday morning following the tragic air crash.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Barry said: 

We appreciate the tremendous support from the community and are working with Adur and Worthing Councils and West Sussex County Council to assist people, along with businesses at the airport, to minimise the disruption.

On Monday motorists should see the eastbound carriageway fully open, with restricted access to Lancing College. On the westbound carriageway one lane will be open with barriers and screens to allow searches to continue for some weeks.

There will be a 40mph speed limit and restrictions on cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians. There will not be general access to the airport from the A27 although support is being given to local business access. The nearby footpaths are closed.

ACC Barry continued:

I understand that people would like to go to the road to pay their respects but this is still an active search and investigation scene, and with road safety concerns and sensitive work being carried out, it is not possible.

This weekend there are a number of memorial events and I would encourage people to attend these. Under no circumstances should people try to access the A27 in order to leave any flowers at the scene.

We are working closely with partners who will ensure that a suitable memorial service is organised for the future.

Our priority is to support the families of the victims and provide them with answers. A week after the incident we are working hard to complete the formal identification of all 11 victims.
