The eyesore site, in Alvis Avenue, Jaywick Sands, has been a problem for residents and following a court application, clearance began on Monday.

Work is expected to take at least three days but Tendring District Council (TDC) said disruption to residents will be kept at a minimum.

TDC are working with partners at Veolia, Essex Police and others to undertake the clearance.
