Man jailed for 3 years after running over a pregnant woman in Leigh On Sea and leaving her with life threatening injuries.
Maldon Gets Muddy
One of the dirtiest sporting events took place in Essex on Easter Monday.
Celebrities like Jo Brand and Sean Lock joined a load of runners in fancy dress for the annual Maldon Mud Race.
It was originally due to take place on 28 December but had to be postponed due to all the snow and cold weather.
About 250 runners tackled a 500 yard dash (or crawl) across the bed of the River Blackwater.
It can take some people up to an hour to complete, however others manage it in 5 minutes!
The event’s been running since the 1970’s and attracts media attention from as far away as Japan and America.
Thousands watched from Maldon’s Promenade Park.
