Dispersal order in Southend

A dispersal order has been put in place in part of Southend following information about an unlicensed music event planned there in breach of the Government’s COVID-19 restrictions.

The order covers the area outlined in the map shown above, which includes the beachfront.

It came into effect at 6pm this evening (Saturday December 19) and will be in place until 4am tomorrow. Southend moves into Tier 4 restrictions from midnight.

Officers will be in the area, but if you witness any criminal or anti-social incidents taking place, please call 101. Always call 999 in an emergency.
