Toot Hill area to lose out in broadband upgrade
Cannabis growers fly-tipping compost

Mystery still surrounds the police operation near Toot Hill on Mayday bank holiday weekend which led to the closure of School Road for four days.

Armed officers placed a cordon at the junction of Berwick Lane with a second roadblock about 200 yards further down School Road to the south of the industrial units at Stewart’s Farm.

A resident is warned that compost dumped by the roadside because it is likely to have been used by illegal cannabis growers.

Local council officials say the fly-tipping of the compost has become a problem as police step up their surveillance of recycling centres and amenity sites across the area.

About half of the properties in the parish of Stanford Rivers will not benefit from the Essex roll-out of the superfast broadband scheme, News & Views can reveal.

It is thought that most homes with a telephone code beginning 01277 will get the superfast fibre enabled service next year with speeds of 24Mbps or more but homes with the 01992 code will received no upgrade to their existing service.
