Dog walking? We're out in force! Stay in your area!
A man who broke lockdown rules has been slapped with a fine by police officers after he drove out of his area to walk his dog.
A 21-year-old drove from Wickford to Great Dunmow to exercise his pet pooch, despite current lockdown restrictions telling people to stay in their area.
The man was given a fixed penalty notice by police last week for breaking restrictions.
Drunken fights outside a notorious pub leading to fatal stabbings? Meh. We're staying in the station.
Essex Police were called just after 6pm tonight (Friday) after an 18-year-old man was admitted to hospital with stab wounds. He died a short time later.
Police say following initial enquiries, officers believe he was attacked near the Peterboat pub in High Street, Old Leigh.
Residents living in Leigh have also reported a large gathering of young people in Leigh Library Gardens. One person reported hearing one of the youngsters discussing who is going to be "shanked".
