Police Logo On Buildings In Colchester
Essex Police has started beaming their One Punch logo onto buildings like Colchester Castle to help cut late night trouble.
It's part of their ongoing campaign to remind any would-be troublemakers to behave because alcohol-related fights and so on won't be tolerated.
The Castle and other buildings in the town centre are now being used to get the message across whist people are on nights out over the weekend.
Police started the campaign in the autumn warning that anyone involved in drunken violence will be prosecuted.
In the past many were held in custody overnight and released with just a caution.
The first of the 66 Crossrail trains is in operation from today running on the TFL route between Liverpool Street and Shenfield.
A crackdown, aimed at tackling online child abuse in Essex has seen more than 40 people arrested in the last six months.
