A 20-year-old man has been arrested after two men died in a collision last week.

Two passengers died when the car they were travelling in left the road and hit a tree at Handcross on Wednesday night.

A man aged 21, from Lindfield, and a man aged 22 from Haywards Heath who were sitting in the back of the BMW died later in hospital from their injuries after the car struck the tree and flipped on its roof just after 10pm.

The man from Lindfield has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
