More than half a billion pounds for social care across Essex but an extra 3% council tax levy will pay for it.
Clacton: Man Held Over Dockyard Death
Police have arrested a Clacton man following the death of a worker at a dockyard.
Suffolk Police said they arrested the man this morning on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter following the death of 52-year-old Neville Wightman at Ipswich Docks.
Mr Wightman, who was from the Ipswich area, was crushed by a section of pontoon at the port on Friday evening.
A man in his 40s from Lowestoft was also injured in the incident and taken to Ipswich Hospital, where he remains in a serious condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
A police spokesman said: "A 47-year-old man from Clacton is currently in custody at the Martlesham police investigation centre where he will be questioned.''
Emergency services were called to Ipswich docks just before 6pm after a report that two men were being crushed by what appeared to be a section of floating pontoon.
A spokesman said police, the fire service and ambulance service attended.
He said: "The Health and Safety Executive has been informed and police will be carrying out a joint inquiry with the HSE to establish what has happened.''
Tendring praised for support to those affected by flooding threats.
Flood-threatened residents have expressed relief on Essex's coast as a feared storm surge failed to deliver the chaos expected.
Evacuees escaping a predicted high tide and severe weather, which could cause mass flooding in a small Essex village, have begun arriving at a rest centre.
