Officers thank local community for helping struggling motorists
Tendring officers have thanked the local community for coming to the rescue of motorists stuck in the snow.
Many Essex residents were excited to wake up to a blanket of snow this week. While it has been exciting for many, the wintry conditions have made it difficult for lots of people to get from A to B.
Officers and partners in Tendring, as well as across the county, have come to the aid of motorists stuck in the snow and have been blown away by the large number of people offering their help.
From clearing the roads, to assisting struggling motorists and kindly offering hot drinks to our officers battling the elements; the community support in the district has been gratefully received.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Wells, District Commander for the Tendring district, said: “We will try to thank you all personally, but we’re immensely grateful to the many farmers who have stepped up and helped keep Tendring safe and moving.”
Inspector Darren Deex said: “Once again, I’ve been blown away by the community spirit in Tendring. From farmers clearing the roads, to members of the public helping to dig out police cars, it’s been really nice to see the public working alongside the emergency services to keep others safe.”
