LAST NIGHT (Thursday) YT went along to Park Lane, Aveley to grab some footage of the bridge over the Aveley by-pass that is under repair after a mystery lorry (area searched, no trace) collided with the bridge.
The bridge is closed and there is a diversion in place, with access only allowed to the Belhus Park.
So you can imagine our surprise when, as we were filming, there was a steady stream of cars driving straight through the diversion.
YT is not really a CCTV service but we have spoken to Essex Police who have advised drivers that at the very least it is a non-endorseable offence and at worst it is careless driving.
The diversion will be in place until at least May 22nd. Local councillor, Robert Ray (UKIP) has hit the ground running and has been in direct conversation with all parties in order to ensure that matters are concluded in a timely fashion.
