THE STATE of Grays Beach Park appears to have worsened over the weekend.
As the summer holidays began, the beach park had to be cordoned off due to flooding.
What used to be an active park became a deserted soggy morass.
Thurrock Council blamed Anglia Water whilst Anglia Water blamed fly-tipping.
Residents simply pointed to the fact that the once blooming park had no beach, no cafe and no toilets.
A local resident sent us in a selection of photographs from the weekend.
