Evening Echo

  • FOUR people got stuck in a yacht on a man-made island off Shoeburyness on Saturday. The yacht called Pressgang came aground at 3.40pm. Following a report from Southend Coastwatch, the Southend RNLI Hovercraft was sent out to the yacht. The coastguard kept watch, while the Hovercraft laid an anchor out, but had to do no more as the vessel was able to refloat and continue towards the River Medway.

    FIREFIGHTERS put out blazing dumped rubbish which got out of control on a traveller site. Police and three fire engines attended the fire at the illegal Five Acres camp off Hovefields Drive, Wickford, at 11.30 pm on Saturday night. The flytipped pile of junk is believed to have contained potentially hazardous gas canisters as residents reported hearing several explosions from the fire. - More in Monday's Echo.

Weekly News

  • A keen actor is set to bare all as he takes the lead in the Full Monty at the Queens Theatre in Hornchurch. Justin Cartledge, 30, of Grays, is playing Jerry Lukowski in the Brentwood Operatic Society’s stage adaptation of the popular film on Sunday, May 2. The show’s director Amy Clayton, 28, is also from Grays. As well as directing, Amy, of Rushdon Close, will also take care of the choreography. Brentwood Operatic Society’s production is based on the American musical version, and tells the story of six steel workers desperate for cash. Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during a girls’ night out the workers, in Buffalo, New York, come up with the idea to strip to make a quick buck. In the process they find renewed self-esteem and discover the importance of friendship. The society performed the show to a sell-out crowd at the Brentwood Theatre in January. It is not suitable for children. There will be two performances on the day – tickets for the 4pm performance are £16 and for the 8pm show are £20. To book call the theatre box office on 01708 443333.

Good Luck to Ian Southgate, Ben Martins, Bob Southgate, Matin harris, Sarah O'sullivan, Sarah Norman, and Lou Byrne

SNOOKER Round Up Mark Williams and Ronnie O'Sullivan are locked at 8 frames a peice going into the final session of their second-round Snooker World Championship clash. In yesterday's other late game Ali Carter leads Joe Perry 10-6. Today's Crucible action resumes at 10 o'clock with 12 players aiming for a quarter-final spot.

Billericay Town, already safe from relegation fears, ended the managerial reign of caretaker boss John Mifsud with a 2-1 defeat at a Sutton United side who had already clinched second spot.

Maldon gave retiring manager Colin Wallington the perfect send-off, but for Brentwood it was a disappointing end to the season. However, after a poor start to the season, Brentwood have finished in a very comfortable mid-table position in Ryman North and will be looking to improve next season.

Boreham Wood 3 - 2 Tooting & Mitcham United
