Pensioner Found Driving Wrong Way On A12
Essex Police says it is a "miracle" no-one was killed after a pensioner was found going the wrong way on the A12.
Officers were called to stretch at Kelvedon at around 2.30pm yesterday following reports of car being driven towards Colchester on the Londonbound carriageway.
The 85 year-old woman driving the car has voluntarily given up her licence, and she was driven back to her home in Gosfield.
Roads Policing Sergeant Sgt Colin Shead said: "The vehicle was being driven the wrong way down one of the county's busiest roads.
"It was a miracle that there wasn't a collision and that we not dealing with another fatality on the county's roads".
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.
