Police have seized cash, mobile phones and several laptops from a shisha pipe establishment in Colchester.

Officers executed a warrant on Friday May 30, at Al Madina, Queen Street, following concerns raised by members of the public.

A force spokesman said no arrests were made but the investigation is still ongoing.

The operation involved multiple agencies alongside the police, including the Immigration Service, Essex Trading Standards and Colchester Borough Council’s licensing and environmental health officers.

Anyone with further information should call Colchester Police Station on 101.

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.
