An incident at Barringtons

“A major multi-agency incident” was how the man-in-charge described it to me. A crime scene, with the southern spur of Sutton Road (that which connects directly with Southchurch Road) taped off.
I saw am apparently incapacitated male lying on the canopy over the entrance to Barringtons.
Two fire engines, three ambulances, and half a dozen police cars; something like thirty to forty emergency services personnel present.
I called Cllr Jones (Barringtons being in Kursaal ward) who hot-footed it from her bed. She got a representative from South Essex Homes to attend – it is they who manage Barringtons.
The incident occurred somewhere between 9 and 9.30pm, and was likely (so I was told last night) to mean the road being inaccessible all night. Although all were tight-lipped, it seemed that a serious incident had taken place.
It certainly attracted a fair amount of attention from passers-by and near-neighbours alike.
