Chaotic scenes at Thurrock Council as community bus users make emotional pleas

THERE were emotional scenes at Thurrock Council last night as dozens of users of a community bus pleaded with the council to save the service.

Thurrock Council may cut all the funding for the service in the next financial year.

Over fifty users attended the meeting which began in what can only be described as chaotic.

The chair of the scrutiny committee, cllr Sue Gray soon lost control of the meeting and had to be rescued by director of planning, David Bull who informed the audience of the due process and then Chadwell St Mary cllr Gerard Rice managed to call a halt to the meeting and allow users to have their say.

The portfolio holder, cllr Andy Smith did not attend.

YH cameras were on hand to record the highlights.
