Profile: George King



Hey there, my name is George King and I am a reporter for the Clacton Gazette and the Daily Gazette. I, therefore, predominantly cover the Clacton, Frinton, Walton and Jaywick areas, as well as some surrounding villages, such as Great Bentley and Kirby Cross. From time to time, I also produce news articles on topics or incidents relevant to Colchester, and, up until recently, I was the sole writer on the Daily Gazette's entertainment pull-out, The Weekend. If you have a story, please do not hesitate to drop me an email over at
