THREE Grays councillors have thanked the emergency services for their work at a high rise flat on Thursday night.
Cllrs Martin Kerin, Jane Pothecary and Tony Fish said:
“We would like to place on the record our thanks to Essex County Fire & Rescue Service for their attendance last night at George Crooks House, in our ward of Grays Riverside.
“It is always worrying when you hear reports of fires. This is especially the case when you hear of them in high rises. We are very mindful of the six tower blocks we have in our patch.
“We were pleased and relieved to hear that, on this occasion, there were no casualties or damage to properties.
“Once again, thank you to our emergency services for keeping us safe and for being there when needed.”
