That's all from us at Essex Live. But before we go, here's a recap of the top stories we've covered:
- Two Essex parents have been given a 12-month conditional discharge after taking their children on holiday during term time
- Southend Hospital has declared an "internal critical incident" after a "very high number" of patients arrived at its A&E, with the hospital already operating at full capacity
- A Maldon primary school has become the first in Essex to introduce a "gender neutral" uniform - which means boys are allowed to wear skirts and girls can wear trousers if they choose to do so
We'll be back tomorrow morning from 08:00 with another day of live coverage for the county.
Have a great evening.
