TUESDAY
FIREFIGHTERS might be more used to getting hot under the collar while at work but thanks to the launch of a new rescue boat they can now cool their heels too.  Crews at Leigh fire station, in Mountdale Gardens, have been trained in both a range of water rescue techniques as well as how to handle powerboats.  The four-metre-long craft, which is the first of its kind in the county, will be used for freshwater and coastal flooding and also inland water rescues.  Station Officer Simon Dedman, Leigh Station Commander, said: “Everyone at the station has really thrown themselves into this project and it is thanks to their enthusiasm that this has come to fruition so quickly.  “We are now all looking forward to putting our skills and equipment to good use throughout the county.” - By Katy Islip,  FOR FULL STORY AND PICTURES SEE TUESDAY'S ECHO.

MERCURY AWARDS
Biffy Clyro, Mumford and Sons, Paul Weller and Corrine Bailey Rae are just some of the artists who will battle it out at the Barclaycard Mercury Prize tonight.  The 2010 Album of the Year recognises the best album from the UK or Ireland.  The event, hosted by Jools Holland, sees Dizzee Rascal nominated for a third time.

NO MORE X FACTOR FOR SIMON
Simon Cowell has revealed plans to quit the X Factor - so that he can concentrate by the US version of the show. The music mogul dropped the bombshell after confessing the launch of the
American version leaves him with no time to do the UK programme. It's thought ITV will consider moving the show so that he can do both.


WEDNESDAY
Last night winners of the Mercury Award were the XX congrats and this morning their album sales have rocketed!!

This morning I was joined by Chair of the Billericay Christmas Market organising committee David Randall.  This year the Christmas fair has been moved to Sunday 5th December between 11 and 6, to ensure that families and commuters can enjoy the festivities.  The high street will be closed to traffic for a full celebration with farmers markets, live music and a Santa’s grotto plus lots, lots more still to be confirmed.  If you are interested in hosting a stall or being a sponsor contact David by e-mail: djr66@aol.com

THE chairman of Essex Police Authority has called for a unique patrol on one of the country’s worst roads to be saved.  Fears have been raised that the £1.25million A12 patrol could fall victim to Government cuts in October.  But Robert Chambers, chairman of the authority, said he would like to see Essex County Council continue to fund the scheme, which was set up a year ago with the police – its partner in the A12 alliance.  The A12 patrol, set up a year ago, was the first locally-funded patrol dedicated to reducing congestion on a major road.  It uses specially-trained police, capable of using stingers and carrying out high-speed pursuits, as well as simply keeping traffic flowing, and was set up on the recommendation of the council’s A12 inquiry.  The notoriously congested route was labelled one of the worst trunk roads in the country.  Essex county councillor for highways and transportation, Norman Hume, who is also chairman of the A12 alliance, said the council was looking at the impact of the patrols.


THURSDAY
Today’s guest was Kat Price who is launching a new talent contest that doesn’t cost you a penny to enter - So you wanna be famous? is now accepting applications and the deadline is the end of January.  They will be travelling the length and the breadth of the country to find talented people who eat, live and breath music.  With the finals being held in a Big London venue it is a great opportunity for all who are successful in the qualifying round and the prize is to record mix and master an album and promotional tour.
e-mail: soyouwannabefamous@hotmail.com for entry forms or find them on facebook - http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=113722431982070

My mate Pete’s weekend warm up:
Tennis - US Open finale this weekend. Today is the last of the men‘s Quarter-Finals, with the men‘s and women‘s finals this weekend. Andy Murray is already out, but Laura Robson is going well in the juniors.
F1 - Italian Grand Prix at Monza, with qualifying at 1pm on Saturday and the race at the same time on Sunday.
Hockey - Women’s World Cup in Rosario, Argentina - England have made it through to the semi-finals where they will take on a very strong Dutch side tonight, with the final on Saturday.
Football - pick of the fixtures this weekend; on Saturday at 12.45 Everton vs. Man U (Rooney returning to Everton where he’ll probably get quite a hostile reception, especially after all of his, ahem, misdemeanours!) Also Saturday at 15.00 West Ham vs. Chelsea, and Monday night, Stoke vs. Aston Villa for Gerard Houllier’s managerial debut for Villa.
Cricket - unfortunately Essex were relegated yesterday, they’re 2 days into their game against last year’s champions Durham and going well, but results elsewhere mean they are relegated after Hampshire got enough bonus points to secure 7th spot.
Rugby union - England women just lost their World Cup final last weekend, but the Aviva Premiership continues this weekend, and in Rugby League the play-offs continue, including the Hull derby on Sunday.
Basketball - the World Championships are ongoing in Turkey, we’re down to the last 8 nations now, unfortunately England aren’t one of them!
Finally, report to come next week on my Handball efforts, but training takes place at 7.30pm on Monday nights at the Brentwood Centre, your first training session is free, and check out www.brentwoodhandball.co.uk for all the details.

THE cast of the most notorious rock’n’roll musical ever are getting ready to shock audiences once more. The timeless Rocky Horror Show is being staged at the Cliffs Pavilion, Westcliff, until Saturday. With Christopher Biggins as narrator, the show tells the story of squeaky-clean sweethearts Brad and Janet, played by Richard Meek and Janet Haley. They go on an adventure they’ll never forget, with the scandalous Frank ‘n’ Furter, rippling Rocky and vivacious Magenta.
Featuring David Bedella as Frank, the musical features timeless classics, including Sweet Transvestite, Damn it Janet, and the pelvic-thrusting Time Warp. - Evening Echo


FRIDAY
My Guests this morning include Abby Knight Beauty Editor and Michael Large Chaiman of the Basildon & Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Michael Large, the Chairman of Basildon & Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust popped in to talk about the Annual General Meeting on the 22nd September and to ask the general public to become members so that they can create a hospital that meets their needs

Each year at the AMM there is a key speaker - this year Mr Robert Wakeman, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon - and he is giving a talk on Dealing with the challenges of fracture management in an ageing population, and usually the talk is a key selling point where there is interest.
As a Foundation Trust, Members can help support and shape the future of there local hospitals and the membership covers all areas within the Essex County Council boundaries.  Currently we have just under  500 FT Members in Brentwood, in a total of 11,000 public members.
