Police have charged a further 12 people following protests in Thurrock, bringing the total number charged to 23, none of whom love in the county.

A further 28 people have been arrested today, bringing the total number of arrests to date to 454.

Officers remain in Thurrock where a small number of people continue to protest.

Essex Police Assistant Chief Constable Glen Pavelin said: “It is anticipated the road network will be busy today and in the coming days, as people travel and spend time with family and friends during the Bank Holiday weekend.

“As demonstrated this week, if you come to Essex and engage in disruptive and dangerous protest, we will arrest you.”
