Southend: Seafront cruisers alert
Motorists have been warned to avoid Southend seafront on Saturday night because of an influx of cruisers from all over the UK.
The number of young motorists descending on the town is expected to be above the average of 500.
While Southend police are keen to minimise the impact, they said motorists would be "well-advised" to stay away.
The event is believed to have been publicised through websites and those taking part are due to meet at a service station on the M25 before driving to Southend.
