Abandoned or under siege: What on earth is going on in East Tilbury?

EARLIER this week, an East Tilbury resident spoke to YT. We were actually discussing health provision in the area but at the end of the conversation they asked “Are you aware of what has been going on in East Tilbury?”

They then said: “I have lived in East Tilbury for over thirty years and have never known a time when there is so much crime and disorder going on”

We have looked at the statistics on and there are 188 record incidents of anti-social behaviour in East Tilbury in 2016.
We stress that is recorded. How many incidents have actually occurred is a moot point. As we know, many people do not report as they have little confidence that the police will or can attend and will or can do anything about it.

We thought we would start from this point as it may help the residents of East Tilbury, who may feel, with the problems with children’s centres, medical centres, level crossings, that they are in a place between abandoned and under siege.
