Police are appealing for information after four cars in Clacton had their tyres slashed on Monday night.

A green Suzuki Vitara, a blue Hyundai I10 and a red Hyundai I20 in Upper Barnston Road were damaged. A black London taxi in Stambridge Road was also damaged.

The criminal damage all happened between 8pm on Monday, January 13, and 9am on Tuesday, January 14.

Investigating officer, Pc Nikki Heath, said: “This really is a mindless act of vandalism which has caused a lot of unnecessary upset and disruption to the lives of the victims involved. I need to speak to anyone who may have witnessed what happened, or anyone with information.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Pc Heath, or her colleagues at Clacton, on 101. Alternatively, call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Rail passengers travelling between London to Ipswich this morning are facing delays after ‘trespass incident’ between Colchester and Marks Tey.

The A14 Orwell Bridge will remain open today as Storm Doris looks to have passed - but it was a busy night for the emergency services as they dealt with the aftermath.

This year marks the 47th annual Ipswich to Felixstowe Road run - and as the organisers make their final preparations we look back to a particularly popular run in May 1995.

Pianos collectively worth £50,000 are being given away to schools and community groups.

Storm Doris has caused widespread disruption across Essex.

Nearly 11 hours after it was closed, motorists are now able to use the Orwell Bridge.

Ipswich’s MP has said work must continue to provide the town with alternative routes for diverted Orwell Bridge traffic in the wake of yesterday’s closure.
