Police are set to investigate a suspicious fire which started in an empty factory in north Essex.

Crews were called to Main Road, Upper Dovercourt, Harwich, just after 7.40pm yesterday.

Firefighters arriving at the scene reported that the first floor of the building was heavily smoke-logged.

Breathing apparatus were worn so crews could get close to the fire with two hose reels used to tackle the blaze in the two-storey building, measuring 209m by 46m.

The fire was under control just before 8.50pm.

In the months since RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague went missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, very little information has come to light.

As a search continues at a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire, police are confirming that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be working alongside officers investigating Corrie McKeague’s disappearance.

You could be forgiven for thinking there was some sort of carriageway cryptology going on in Boxford at the moment – with drivers facing messages like ‘S’ and ‘7’ when they arrive in the picturesque Suffolk village.

A man has been arrested in Berkshire in connection with an Essex murder investigation.
