All this week we're announcing our nominees for the ITV Fundraiser of the Year in the East. We asked for your nominations for people in our region that go the extra mile to help others and raise money for charity. The winner will be heading to the glitzy Daily Mirror Pride of Britain awards later this month.
We meet our final nominee Michael Son - a London cabbie from Westcliff-on-Sea near Southend - who has raised millions for underprivileged children.
A man in his 40s has died after being rescued from the water at Westcliff on Sea in Essex.
The East of England Ambulance service said an off-duty nurse and paramedics tried to treat the man. He was taken to Southend Hospital. Essex Police said that the man later died.
Burglars who broke into a house at Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex ate the homeowners' cakes after stealing their wedding and engagement rings. The thieves struck at a house in Park Street on Saturday. They also stole some computer equipment. Police have described them as 'brazen'.
