That's the end of our regular updates for Essex for another week.
Here are some of the stories we've covered today:
- The owner of a restaurant who decided to ban under-fives told us she has been stopped in the street and labelled a "disgrace to motherhood".
- The mother of murdered Theydon Bois woman Maria Byrne spoke of her killer's "web of lies" about what had happened to her.
- And the family of a 100-year-old woman who died after a collision in Shoebury last month paid tribute to her.
Any breaking stories will appear here overnight. Otherwise we'll be back with more news, sport, weather and travel for the county from 08:00 on Monday morning.
Have a great weekend.
