An Upminster scrap dealer was awarded £6,450 in a “David and Goliath” case against the British Transport Police (BTP) which has left him physically and emotionally scarred.

The club which is based at Cranham Community Association, in Marlborough Gardens has just launched its new programme for the next year.

Year five and six students at James Oglethorpe Primary School came out on top as they faced other schools in the borough at Rainham Cricket Club, and will now represent Havering against other schools from all over Essex.

In June last year, a 25-year-old man was robbed of his Yamaha motorbike worth £9,000 just two hours after he had bought it.

The cost for a family of renting a home in Havering has increased by 29per cent over the last four years and house prices have increased in the borough by 1.4pc in April.

Volunteers who have helped out the community by completing thousands of hours of unpaid work, by doing everything from making sure hospital patients receive the correct treatment, to running lunchtime clubs have been rewarded for their efforts.
