In Monday's Gazette: 999 Hero rescues man from sinking car
9:02am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
A HERO emergency worker helped save a man trapped inside a sinking car in a north Essex river.
The worker rushed to the man's aid after he was left rapped inside the car, which had careered off The Walls in Mistley and into the River Stour.
Also in today's paper:
- Tripping over potholes, falling off trampolines and injuries from water slides are just some of the claims which led to Colchester Council dishing out more than £543,000 in compensation.
- Burglars have broken into a Colchester dental surgery and stolen a safe - the latest in a string of nearby crimes which could even force the busy practice to move out.
- Relatives and friends have paid tribute as they made a sad farewell to tragic mum Kirsty Humphrey.
Remember, there's always much more in the newspaper than online.
