STREET lights will kept on between midnight and 5am in a part of Colchester where a murder investigation has been launched.
A woman’s body was found by a footpath behind Britten Close, Greenstead, at 10.40am today, Tuesday June 17.
The woman, who has not yet been identified, suffered serious and multiple injuries to her head and body.
Parts of Colchester were plunged into darkness between midnight and 5am from December 1 last year.
Residents have protested the move could lead to an increase in crime and accidents.
