HOLLYWOOD star and former Thurrock resident, Russell Brand has urged people to sign the petition against a new Thames Crossing in Thurrock.
His home town of Grays and the rest of the borough is always very close to Russell Brand’s heart and has always supported causes over the years including Thurrock Mind and Sericc.
He has also kept in close contact with his old schools: Grays School (now Hathaway Academy ) and Little Thurrock Primary.
He has posted the film below on his Facebook page and signposted fans and followers to the petition that has over 11,000 signatures.
Mr Brand seems to think that the bridge is being built at "the behest" of DP World in Stanford-le-Hope. Naturally, we will check that out but he doe make an emotional plea for the future of Treetops School and the health of people in the borough.
