Mid Sussex Models in Burgess Hill has closed after being in business for 30 years.

Roger Lunn, proprietor since 1997, plans to move to Cambridgeshire to be closer to his grandchildren. He hoped to sell on the business, however, was unable to find a taker due to the current economic climate.

The store specialised in Airfix models, Scalextric and Hornby.
