  • SOUTHEND United have again staved off a winding up order over unpaid tax debts after supermarket giant Sainsbury's again came to the club's rescue. The club were today given another week to come up with just under £400,000 owed to Revenue and Customs. The High Court heard Sainbury's, which is now joint applicant for the club's plans to develop a new stadium at Fossetts Farm, has £400,000 sitting in a bank account to pay off the debt subject to final negotiations. The case was adjourned until next Wednesday. - FULL REPORT, ANALYSIS AND REACTION IN THURSDAY'S ECHO
  • THE Red Arrows have pulled out of this year’s Southend airshow following the loss of one of its aircraft during a training exercise last month. The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team confirmed it will fly as a “nine-ship formation” following the incident which took place during pre-season training at Kastelli in Crete on March 23. The team must now train to fly in the new smaller formation and will not be ready to gain a licence to perform in public displays before June 16. Southend Council said there would still be a full programme of aerobatic displays and ground entertainment throughout the two days of the Festival of the Air on Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, May 31. - See the full story in tomorrow's Echo

  • ELECTRICAL giant Currys is pulling out of the High Street this autumn as concerns grow about Brentwood town centre losing its sparkle. However, rumours Argos and Pizza Hut will also be shutting up shop have been denied by the companies. A spokesman for Currys said: "Regrettably, the store in Brentwood will be closing in the autumn as part of our ongoing portfolio review. "The seven staff members have been informed and we are working with them to help find alternative employment, as there are a number of other Currys and PC World stores nearby." Brentwood has always had a proud tradition of independent restaurants and shops. However, the owners of the relatively new Munrows Restaurant have revealed crippling business rates could force them to go under. Plans for free parking schemes are being touted around to try and draw shoppers in to boost trade.
