THREE boys have been arrested following an incident at Lakeside regional shopping centre earlier this week when a gang of balaclava-clad youths confronted a food delivery driver, attempted unsuccessfully to steal his moped but then pushed him and stole a bag of food he was attempting to deliver.

THURROCK Council has acted quickly to confirm it will be replacing and installing play equipment that was due to be placed on the Heath at Chadwell St Mary but was destroyed in a deliberate fire set by arsonists last weekend.
