The antisocial behaviour taking place in Butler Road car park is impacting on many people’s lives.

Residents living close by say they have had enough, while customers at the Locomotive pub have also revealed they have felt intimidated.

Action is needed but the authorities will need the help of residents to stamp out this unruly behaviour.

Essex Police is calling for people to report incidents to them so officers can begin to tackle the issue. But until they are given a clear picture of what is happening, it will be difficult for them to take action.

Residents may be fed up, but they must not accept what is taking place in the car park.

It’s time they worked with police and helped put an end to this unacceptable behaviour.
