Elderly Women Serious Injured In Southend Crash
An elderly woman has suffered serious injuries after a car crash on Southend seafront.
A car collided with a lamp post on Western Esplanade, near Adventure Island, at around 3pm yesterday (Thursday, 11 February).
Essex Police said: "The tow elderly occupants of the car, a man and a woman, have been taken to the Royal London Hospital.
"The woman has serious injuries.
"The road had to remain closed for some time while forensic work was carried out and the vehicle was recovered".
Michael Barrymore is entitled to "more than nominal" damages against Essex Police over his wrongful arrest.
A man has been jailed for four years and banned from driving for five years after a fatal crash in Weeley Heath.
"Have fun in a safe environment" is Essex Police's message to festival-goers this year as Chelmsford gears up for the V Festival.
