Doctors and health care leaders today announced a new development in the options for future hospital services in mid and south Essex.
Decision Made On Essex Fire Cuts
Plans which will see 138 full-time firefighter roles in Essex cut by 2020 have been approved.
The proposals will also see the number of fire engines reduced from 74 to 66.
In total it's meant to save £6.4 million.
It also means greater emphasis on the role of retained firefighters, with some full time crews becoming on-call ones.
Acting Chief Fire Officer Adam Eckley, has told HEART "it's a model that we know works... it's efficient (and) effective".
Residents are being urged to give their views on the Chelmsford City Growth Package.
A group of 12 men from Essex have been jailed for more than 40 years for a violent attack on a football fan.
Essex Police are carrying out a crack down on knife crime this week.
