Detectives investigating the murder of a father-of-five in Colchester say the investigation remains a top priority, one year on.

James Attfield, who was 33, was found stabbed more than a hundred times in Castle Park on 29 March last year.

More than 100,000 hours of police time and 10 arrests have so far led to no charges.

140 knives have been examined but the murder weapon still hasn't been found.

Lifeboats were called out to a container ship off the coast of Essex which was left drifting in a major shipping lane.

The 260 metre-long ANL Warringa was on its way to Hamburg from Tilbury when it lost power 30 miles off the Essex coast.

Lifeboats from Harwich, and Walton and Frinton stayed with the ship until 11pm last night as a commercial tug from Holland pulled the ship to its destination.
