Trouble At The bank

Yorick Road 8.45 am

My walk to work this morning was fairly unremarkable except in one respect, as I passed the end of Yorick Road there was an attempted armed robbery in progress at Barclays bank. I took a hasty couple of pictures on my mobile phone then with the arrival of a police armed response team I decided the sensible thing would be to stop 'rubber necking' and get myself off to the safe distance of the Artcafé and a cup of coffee. Later this morning I set out for the Colchester café only to find the police had completely sealed off Mersea Island at the Strood, great drama indeed.
