A Section 60 was put in place yesterday evening in the surrounding area, giving officers the additional powers to stop-and-search.

It’s essentially an extension of the stop and search powers officers already use but differs because it means officers do not need to have reasonable grounds to stop someone.

A 19-year old man has been arrested in Chelmsford on suspicion of GBH, where he remains in police custody.
