Over the bank holiday weekend Police and security officers where wondering around Southend in their numbers as they intend to cut terror threats.
The security where wondering around the Adventure Island theme park while the police where walking along the sea front where they had a mobile police office.
This comes just days after the Manchester terror attacks where 22 people lost their lives at a Ariana Grande concert at M.E.N Arena.

“It’s good to see the security and police patrolling the area at these times it really does make me feel at ease.”
We have to say we agree with Debra it’s fantastic that the police and security are out making sure that nothing suspicious is going on.
