Details of the new Dentist in Hullbridge, situated in Ferry Road. Please contcat the Dental surgery direct for further information.
Police are investigating reports of an on-line Internet gamer using the tag 'Loose Dog' contacting children in Hullbridge via 'Minecraft' offering help with their game.
There is no evidence to suggest this user has done anything wrong at this moment or is any risk to children. It may be contact has been made via other internet games on either XBOX or PlayStation.
Please check if your children have accepted anyone of that name. If so, please contact PC Steve Joynes on 101 or email Steve.Joynes@essex.pnn.police.uk
Please also check that your children know the identity of all their on-line friends. If there is any doubt, delete the user. We are aware some children accept friends just to be popular, but do they actually know who they are chatting to on-line??
There is lots of advice on the internet in relation to on-line safety which is well worth looking at and discussing with your children. e.g. www.thinkuknow.co.uk
Another trend on the increase is 'nude selfies' being exchanged especially by young people. Once a photo is shared on the internet it is no longer owned by the sender. It could also be shared around school, work colleagues or on social media causing embarrassment at the very least.
Thank you. PC 1325 Steve JOYNES.

Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery at Betfred in Rayleigh High Street. A white man armed with what was believed to be a firearm entered the premises shortly before 8.45pm on Sunday, January 24 and used a nearby stool to jump onto the counter. He demanded cash from the male member of staff who was forced to open the safe and till. He made off with a three figure sum of money. The staff member was uninjured but was left very shaken up by what had happened. The suspect was described as aged between 30 and 40, 5ft 7ins tall, of stocky build, and wore a blue hooded jumper and black scarf covering his face. He used a gold 'JD' drawstring sports bag to carry the cash. Police carried out an extensive search of the surrounding area and the helicopter was dispatched to assist. The man has yet to be located. Enquiries are ongoing and witnesses who have yet to speak to police or anyone with information are asked to call officers at Rayleigh CID on 101.
