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?
