A man has been charged after police responded to reports of a car meet in West Thurrock.

James Simmons, 25, of Limes Avenue, Chigwell, has been charged with obstructing a constable in the execution of duty and failing to comply with a public spaces protection order.

He is due in Southend Magistrates’ Court on Monday January 4.

It follows reports of a car meet at an industrial estate off Western Avenue at around 8.15pm on Tuesday September 8 – an area that falls within a public spaces protection order.

This order looks to tackle car cruising, dangerous driving and any associated anti-social behaviour in and around the Lakeside area.
