Hello, I'm Amanda Goodman.
First tonight, five men have been arrested on suspicion of murder
after the death of a man from stab wounds near Chelmsford.
Officers were called to a property at Rettendon Common just before
from stab wounds.
He was given emergency treatment at the scene but died.
Five men aged between 21 and 42 have been arrested on suspicion of murder
and remain in custody.
A man remains unaccounted-for following a fire which destroyed
a cottage in Suffolk overnight.
Crews were called to Gaston Street in East Bergholt at one o'clock this
morning but couldn't prevent the roof collapsing.
Firefighters searched the wreckage for a man who's
thought to be the owner.
It's not clear if he was in the house at the time.
A fund which has been untouched since it was set-up 77 years ago
will soon be used to create a new wartime memorial
at Clacton in Essex.
It was started after a German bomber laden with explosives crashed
onto a residential street in 1940 causing the first civilian deaths
in the UK in the Second World War.
Jenny Kirk reports.
'The wreckage of war comes to the peaceful
of Clacton.' April 1940, a German bomber crashes on Clacton
injuring 160 and badly damaging 67 homes.
Number 25 was completely destroyed and the two people inside,
Mr and Mrs Gill,
became the first two British civilian casualties of the Second
World War to die on the British mainland.
Looking at Victoria Road nowadays you would not even be able
to spot a small sign of the destruction.
That is because the only small sign is a plaque on this
bench which is believed to have been stolen.
That is about to change.
Four years ago in an office move at Clacton Town Hall, an old Post
Office savings account was found.
It was the Air Disaster Relief Fund and the ?243, 13 shillings and
sixpence had lain forgotten for nearly 70 years.
It is now worth ?1700 and that money plus 10,000 from
the council will pay for a proper Memorial.
We thought it could be something that can be done a
lot better now.
It was only when we found the money we got the idea.
We're going to look at a new bench, a memorial with a plaque on it, some
hard landscaping and some planting.
The memorial will be ready in time for a ceremony on April 30, the 77th
anniversary of the tragedy.
Football now and with our weekly look at some of the highlights

Hello and good evening.
It was a cloudy end to the weekend.
But the working week looks like a return to
First of all overnight, that rain clearing
slowly towards the east.
Fairly cloudy, some clear spells in the mix
and temperatures between five and 9 degrees.
It looks like a cloudy start tomorrow.
We will see the cloud clearing to the east.
Behind it, sunshine developing before cloud pushes down from the
North into the afternoon.

More cloud but largely dry with light winds.
