A MAN was arrested less than an hour after quick-working officers attended a burglary. 

Essex Police received reports at about 11.45pm on Monday (Feb 17), of a burglary in Kingwell Avenue, Clacton. 

Two officers from the Clacton Local Policing Team, including one who had not long completed her training, visited the property and quickly established that a stolen bank card had been used in a shop.

Within 40 minutes, they had located a 20-year-old man from Clacton, in London Road.

He was then arrested on suspicion of burglary and remains in custody for questioning.
