Vandalism slammed

Late-night pranksters are understood to have vandalised a much-loved Southend symbol last week.

A super-sized cray pot has stood on a concrete base alongside the sole sealed entrance road. However, an angle grinder was used around midnight last Monday to cut it down.

Members of the Southend Progress Association have expressed their dismay at this act of vandalism.

The cray pot represents a significant postwar industry at Southend.

Wattle Range Council has just decided to erect a similar fishing apparatus at Beachport after a period of public consultation. This cray pot was donated to the council by St Anthony’s School in Millicent.
