Essex Police on Twitter

essex-police-on-twiiterAfter all the unrest over the last few days, I just wanted to say thank you to Essex Police for their presence on Twitter last night.

Whilst rumours were rife about riots and fires in Southend and Basildon, their reassuring tweets keeping us up to date with what was actually happening helped to maintain calm.

Several of us were retweeting those messages in an attempt to spread the message throughout the area in response to many other updates on both Twitter and Facebook, which resulted in a large group of youths collecting in Basildon because it was ‘all kicking off’.

Via Twitter, Essex Police also announced that three people from Grays, Clacton and South Ockendon have been arrested on suspicion of attempting to incite violence using Facebook and Twitter.
