Evening Echo

  • MOTORCYCLE instructors in south Essex have said the new driving test could lead to bikers taking to the roads without a full licence. The new test came in to force last year, but has just been criticised in a damning report by the Parliamentary Transport Select Committee, which said learners have to travel too far for their tests. The examination requires riders to complete a competency exam on a specialist off-road track. The Southend Driving Test Centre, which held car and motorbike tests, was forced to close because it did not have a track. Learners now have to go to a larger centre in Basildon. Across the country, the number of test centres was cut from 200 to 50, because of a lack of off-road facilities, leading to a huge drop in the number of tests available and raising safety concerns. Would-be bikers, as well as learner drivers, now take both the on-road and off-road parts of their test at the new Basildon test centre, in Paycocke Road, following the closure of the Southend test centre, in Prittlewell Chase.
  • LORRY drivers on Essex’s roads are still putting themselves, and other motorists, at risk. Operation Mermaid safety checks were again carried out at the Boreham Services, in Chelmsford, on the A12. Out of 28 vehicles stopped and checked, six were stopped from going any further because of mechanical faults. Nine prohibition orders were issued against the six vehicles. Nine vehicles were found to have 14 mechanical faults. PC Dave Gorbutt, commercial transport investigator for Essex Police, said the figures for drivers breaking the law with vehicle faults and driving beyond their legal hours were staying about the same. Twice a week at three checkpoints in the county, of which Boreham is one, Operation Mermaid is carried out. PC Gorbutt said the most serious fault they found was on a foreign 41-tonne articulated lorry with its trailer brakes not working. He added: “When you realise the trailer could be carrying up to 30 tonnes, you can see how dangerous that is.” A total of 113 driving hours infringements were detected and three other driving and licence offences were dealt with. A total of £1,070 was taken in fixed penalty charges and deposits.

Weekly News

  • IT is the battle of the unofficial World Cup songs and Chelmsford’s entry is hoping to get your vote. Sally and Phil Mathie have written Show the World as their contribution to the World Cup in South Africa, which starts in June. The couple, of Beeleigh Link, felt past World Cup songs were always produced by big names and wanted to strike a blow for the ordinary football fan. Sally, 31, explained she wrote most of the words to the tune of Disney’s Bare Necessities from the Jungle Book, along with husband Phil. Friend Brian Johnson then did the recording and videoing one afternoon in the back garden, with a group of 20 friends and neighbours. Sally said it had received 600 views since going on YouTube and 500 people had visited the fan page on Facebook. She added: “We are still waiting to hear from Warner’s about what permissions we need to use the music. “But people have been really complimentary about it. It just started as a bit of fun.“Whatever happens, it has been great fun and something we will always remember.” Sally said they were now hoping someone would take it on board. She said: “If you don’t try, you don’t know what will happen.” The video can be found on YouTube by typing World Cup song Chelmsford. It has now been entered into the World Cup song 2010 competition and every time it is viewed, it will get a vote.

Cricket – Essex not having a good time against Lancashire at Chelmsford, struggling to get many runs and to avoid losing wickets!

Boxing- Carl Froch vs Mikkel Kessler in Denmark in the Super Middleweight title flight.

Saturday premier league fixtures – It’s the Manchester/North London extravaganza! Man Utd vs Tottenham at 12.15, and Arsenal vs Man City at 5.30.

Also, Southend could be relegated tomorrow...which would be a lovely birthday present for me!

London Marathon on Sunday morning, set to be a very hot one although maybe with some cloud. Most top runners seem to have managed to arrive in London by various means, and best of luck to everyone running, let’s hope everyone has loads of fun, is pleased with their time, and makes lots of money for their charities.

And I'll be back in next week :-) (fingers crossed!)
