A EUROPEAN MP has visited one of the most deprived areas of Essex in a bid to seek funding which could give it a new lease of life.
Jeffrey Titford MEP for the eastern region spent time in Jaywick near Clacton talking to the residents about their concerns including the lack of drainage and infrastructure.
The visit was organised by Community Representatives Party councillor Roy Smith as a way of finding out if Jaywick could benefit from a windfall of European funding.
Mr Smith said he was unhappy about the amount of hollow promises the residents of Jaywick had been given through the years by the national Government and its representatives.

He said: "It was all about working together. That part of Jaywick has been a very deprived area and there is a lack of infrastructure.
"I was very pleased that there were so many youngsters who came along to make their views known. People here are fed up with ministers trying to score political points. This all does take time, but there is more hope when you have people here who are interested at looking at the issues."
