A woman is due to appear in court charged in connection with the death of a 74-year-old man, who was killed in a road accident in St Osyth.

Kellie Tandy, 36, of St John’s Road, Clacton was arrested at the scene after a car struck a pensioner on Clacton Road, before crashing into a pub.

The collision, which happened on Thursday, May 11, 2017, killed 74-year-old grandfather Ronald Ramsey, who was walking his dog Bobby at the time.

Paying tribute to their beloved relative in the wake of the tragedy, Mr Ramsey’s family said: “As we struggle to understand the devastation we have been left to deal with, we take strength knowing what high regard friends and villagers had for Ronnie, my Dad and brilliant grandad.

“Thank you for all your sincere thoughts.”

Tandy will appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, September 4 where she will be charged with causing death by dangerous driving, failing to provide a specimen, and driving without insurance.

Car crime has risen sharply in Ipswich – and 98% of its perpetrators went unpunished.

Fire response times in Suffolk are nearly three minutes more than national averages – and nearly two minutes behind other rural areas, according to new figures.

The number of anti-depressants prescribed in parts of Essex has risen by nearly a fifth in just three years, according to NHS data.

A burglar has been jailed for two and a half years after he was identified by DNA found on a water bottle left at the scene of the crime.

Fire crews were called to a house fire in Hatfield Peverel this afternoon which was caused by sunlight shining though a desk-mounted magnifying glass.

Police want to speak to two men captured on CCTV following the theft of 100 litres of diesel in Tiptree.

An Essex police officer who had blood spat in his face says his attacker will “feel like he’s got away with it” after being asked to pay just £50 compensation by Colchester magistrates.
