Driver sentenced over death of partially sighted pedestrian in Crawley

Friday, November 10th, 2017

A driver who killed a partially sighted man as he attempted to cross a road in Crawley has been sentenced.

Police were called to a collision between a blue Volkswagen Golf and a pedestrian on the A23 Brighton Road at 3.10pm on Friday 29th April, 2016.

The victim, Robert Sims, of Cuckfield Close, Crawley, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The 30-year-old, who is a keen runner, was on his way to the K2 leisure centre when he was struck in lane two of the northbound carriageway.

Both carriageways were closed for several hours while emergency services, including the air ambulance, were in attendance.

The driver – Amir Khan, 23, a mechanic, of Celandine Close, Crawley – received minor injuries and was later interviewed by police.

He denied any wrongdoing, and claimed he braked his car (pictured) as hard as he could when he spotted Mr Sims in the road.

However, evidence including witness statements and forensic analysis suggested he failed to react to the obvious risk presented to him at that location.

Following a trial which concluded at Lewes Crown Court on 13th October, Khan was found guilty of causing death by careless driving.

At the same court on Friday (10th November), he was sentenced to a 12 months Community Order, 180 hours unpaid work, was disqualified from driving for three years and will need to take an extended re-test

Roads Policing Lead Investigator, Sergeant Richard Hornsey, of the Sussex Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This was a tragic incident in which a partially sighted man was killed as he made his way to his local leisure centre.

“It is unfortunate that Mr Sims didn’t use the pedestrian crossing, and instead attempted to cross a few metres along the carriageway. However, there was also an error of judgement from the driver, who clearly could – and should – have acknowledged and reacted to the obvious risk in front of him.

“Failing to do so has had a devastating effect on the victim’s family, the members of the public who witnessed the collision and the members of the emergency services who attended the scene.

“Clearly Khan had not gone out to intentionally harm someone that day, however the incident could have been avoided or the consequences could have been far less serious had he paid proper attention to the risks on the road.

The following tribute has been issued by the family of Mr Sims:

“Losing Robert, our eldest son, on 29th April 2016, has caused unimaginable emotional and psychological pain to us, his parents, and also his twin brothers and his late grandfather (who died in February 2017 – finding it exceptionally difficult to accept that he had outlived his first born grandson.

“His absence from our family is a gaping wound that will never heal, we cover it with dressings each day, but it will always be there. As parents you never expect your child’s death to precede your own. Equally, his twin brothers have been forced to assimilate the fact their older brother will never be there to guide them again, share holidays, evenings out in Brighton or their never ending banter during family occasions.

“The shock and torment of his passing, aged only 30, will always remain. There’s not a day that passes that our thoughts are not affected by him. Of course we always try to treasure our happiest memories, but those are often tainted by this chasm of loss that we feel. We are beset with “Robert Memories” where we remember what was, but can only imagine what might have been.

“He had managed to overcome so many obstacles in his life with positivity and resilience. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour in June 2015 (fortunately benign but pressing on his optic nerve) which affected his sight. He had adapted to independent living again in Crawley and was back at work and showing all the signs of building a new life. Yet all the progress he had made was, we feel, ripped from him when he lost his life.

“As well as the feelings of regret and despair, probably our greatest disappointment is that we will never see where his new found confidence and approach to life would take him, or see him complete his dreams.

“His echoes still resound though among his family and friends, as we all take comfort from the caring, kind, compassionate, generous and often hilarious impact he made on so many lives while he was here.”

Remember someone special with St Catherine’s Hospice Tree of Light service

Friday, November 10th, 2017

St Catherine’s Hospice is inviting local residents to come together and remember loved ones at its annual Tree of Light service.

Taking place on Sunday 10th December at the K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley, from 3.00pm, the moving event offers bereaved family and friends an opportunity to reflect on the year that’s passed and honour someone special by dedicating a star in their memory.

Everyone who attends is invited to place a dedication star on the Tree of Light with an in memory donation for each star encouraged. By dedicating a star, you’re not only remembering the person you love, you’re also helping other people’s loved ones. Your donations allow St Catherine’s to help people to live as well as they can, for as long as they can, giving them chance to spend treasured time with family and friends.

This year’s service will include music from Dorking’s Loud and Proud Community Choir and carefully chosen readings before tea and coffee is served after the service. Counsellors from St Catherine’s will also be on hand to speak to anyone who would find this helpful.

St Catherine’s Tree of Light is open to everyone, regardless of whether they’ve known someone cared for by the hospice.

Rev Lisa Rainier, Spiritual Care Lead for St Catherine’s, said: “Losing someone close can be one of life’s hardest experiences and Christmas can be an especially difficult and poignant time of year. Traditionally, Christmas is a time to be with family and friends so Tree of Light is a great way to remind those who are bereaved in our local community that we understand their feelings of loss and that we’re here to offer them support.

At Tree of Light, our decorated trees stand as beautiful, shining memorials to the people we all love and miss and although services are designed to allow people to reflect on their loss, and reassure them that their feelings are normal, ultimately, they’re uplifting. In fact, many people tell me that after attending Tree of Light they feel more able to appreciate and engage with the spirit of the festive season.”

If you can’t attend the K2 service, there is another Crawley service taking place on the same day (Sunday 10 December) at Crawley United Reformed Church, Worth Park Avenue, RH10 3DF at 4pm and there are other smaller services in churches throughout the local area on Sunday 3 December. For full details please visit: www.stch.org.uk/treeoflight.

For more information on making a donation, attending the K2 Tree of Light or a service more local to you please contact Semeena Khan at St Catherine’s on 01293 583059 or email: remembering@stch.org.uk

St Catherine’s is only able to provide the very best end of life care to local terminally ill people when it’s needed most thanks to the generosity of supporters. Please consider supporting your local hospice with a donation – www.stch.org.uk

Council aiming to make Crawley a Living Wage town

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Crawley Borough Council is encouraging local businesses to become accredited Living Wage employers, with the aim of making Crawley a Living Wage town.

On Monday the new UK rate, which is independently calculated to meet the cost of living, was announced by the Living Wage Foundation.

Employees outside of London will see a rise of 30p to £8.75 per hour while the London rate will rise from £9.75 to £10.20 per hour.

The council is continuing to pay above the real Living Wage while contractors and casual staff will receive the new rate.

Many businesses who voluntarily opt-in to the scheme have seen a rise in productivity and morale amongst employees, which is one of many ways it can benefit a business.

Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, Councillor Peter Smith, said: “Converting to a Living Wage town would not only improve the economic growth of Crawley but also encourage job seekers and graduates to build their careers here.

“The council has been an accredited Living Wage employer since 2013 and it has improved motivation and helped to attract and retain a quality workforce. I’m proud to say we’re committed to supporting the campaign for many years to come.”

Continuing this, Leader of Crawley Borough Council, Councillor Peter Lamb, said: “Crawley is situated in one of the UK’s most successful economic areas, yet far too many residents are earning less than it’s possible to live on.

“That’s clearly wrong and it’s hard to see how productive employees can be when distracted by constant concerns over how they’re going to make ends meet.”

Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation said: “Year-on-year, we see organisations and businesses across the UK embracing the real Living Wage as they recognise that a fair day’s pay is not only the right thing to do, but can improve quality of work, reduce staff absences due to stress, increase motivation and create a long lasting workforce.”

“Monday’s increase acknowledges that the cost of living continues to rise for workers everywhere and the leadership shown by businesses who welcome this is a cause for celebration during Living Wage Week, sending a positive message to the business community to show what others can achieve.”

Buses will serve these stations and journey times considerably extended. Services between London, Gatwick and the coast will continue to operate, but to a reduced frequency. Great Western Railway services will continue to operate between Reigate and Reading, but buses will replace trains between Reigate and Gatwick Airport.
  • No Thameslink cross-London services: From Saturday 23rd December to Monday 1st January inclusive, there will be no Thameslink cross London service. Please use the tube and London buses to complete your journey. Full details of these alterations are available on the Thameslink website
  • Southampton: From Saturday 23rd December to Monday 1st January inclusive, Southern services to/from Southampton Central will be diverted to Portsmouth & Southsea. Customers for stations between Cosham and Southampton should change at Fratton and use Great Western Railway and South Western Railway services to complete their journey. Buses will replace all trains between Woolston and Southampton Central, but rail connections will be available via Eastleigh. Between 09:00 and 19:00 on the working days (Wednesday 27th to Friday 29th December) a limited Southern train service will operate to/from Fareham and Woolston
  • London Bridge: From Saturday 23rd December to Monday 1st January inclusive, there will be significant alterations to Southeastern services with many London stations not served by their trains. Full details will be available on the Southeastern website. Southern and Thameslink services to and from London Bridge and London Blackfriars will be busier. There will also be no Southern or Thameslink service to or from London Bridge from start of service until approx. 11:00 on Saturday 23rd December and tickets will be accepted on Tube and bus services. Full details of these alterations are available on the Thameslink website.
  • Christmas Eve: Services will shut down early from approximately 20:00 on Sunday 24th December. Please check your last trains carefully before you travel.

Planning my journey

Information is included in the ‘Buy tickets’ functionality on this website or by visiting nationalrail.co.uk and using the journey planner.

During the Thameslink cross London closure, it may be easier for you to use local bus or Tube services. Please use the journey planner at tfl.gov.uk to plan these journeys. For details of ticket acceptance on Tube and London bus services when Thameslink cross London services are suspended, please check the Thameslink website.

Gatwick’s cargo tonnage soars in busiest ever October

Friday, November 10th, 2017

  • 3.9m passengers travelled through Gatwick in the airport’s busiest ever October – up 1.4% with long-haul traffic +13.3%
  • Cargo tonnage soars +32.1% on last year
  • Gatwick wins Airport of the Year (National Transport Awards) and UK’s Best Airport (Airport Operators Association Awards)

London Gatwick achieved its busiest ever October as 3.9 million passengers travelled through the airport during last month. Long-haul traffic continues its booming growth +13.3% in the month.

This long-haul growth drove soaring cargo tonnage +32.1% on October 2016. This cargo rise is the result of Gatwick’s continually increasing global connectivity with 22 new long-haul routes added in the last 12 months including Cape Town, Kigali, Singapore, Hong Kong, Chicago, Austin, Denver and Seattle.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong is performing strongly, +44%, as passengers utilise the daily connection offered from Gatwick. Other popular destinations included New York +46.5%, Los Angeles +44.5% and Vancouver +22.2%.

Regional connectivity continued to perform strongly from Gatwick in October with Inverness +11.0%, Edinburgh +7.3%, Isle of Man +7.1% and Newquay +5.9%.

Alongside this traffic growth, the passenger experience provided by Gatwick has scooped a string of top accolades this month, including Airport of the Year (National Transport Awards) and UK’s Best Airport (Airport Operators Association Awards).

Passenger growth at Gatwick in October was affected by Monarch ceasing trading. Monarch carried 4.5% of the airport’s flights which is an average of 285 flights per week. Prior to Monarch entering into administration, Gatwick’s passenger growth was +7.1%, as a monthly average this year.

Gatwick Airport CEO Stewart Wingate said:

“Gatwick was this month named the UK’s Best Airport by the Airport Operators Association and Airport of the Year at the National Transport Awards which serve as the most recent acknowledgement of our market-leading success and also reward the commitment and hard work of our staff and partners right across the airport.

“October’s soaring cargo growth is the latest by-product of Gatwick’s ever increasing long-haul network, providing passengers with more choice of connections globally.

“We’re on the verge of serving 46 million passengers this year, up from 31 million in 2010. That’s a 50% increase in total passenger numbers in just 7 years.

“Alongside this passenger growth we’ve also invested to improve experience at the airport, reducing queuing times, adding more choice in retail, improving our on-time performance and achieving record-levels of passenger satisfaction. Improvements all recognised in Gatwick’s recent award wins.

“Passengers are voting with their feet to choose Gatwick – all we need now is a way to satisfy their growing demand.”
