A Helicopter In the Night



by admin // in Rayleigh


We had an email today from a resident in the Downhall Park Way area of Rayleigh who told us:

Does anyone know why we had a helicopter hovering over the Sweyne Park part of Rayleigh this morning?
It woke me up shortly after 3am and continued for probably an hour, I had to shut my window to be able to get back to sleep as the noise was unbearable.
I presume it was a police helicopter, is it something we should be worried about?

We’ve made some inquiries and been told there’s nothing to worry about, but does anyone else know any more?

  • I can’t say I know anything but it wouldn’t be the first time people have been woken by the “chopper copper” in the middle of the night, and probably not the last!
