A 35-year-old man has been charged with dangerous driving and possession of cocaine after he was arrested over the weekend.

Jason Harvey, of Heaton Avenue, Harold Hill, will appear at Southend Magistrates Court today.

Harvey was driving a car, believed stolen from Dagenham, which triggered a number plate recognition camera on the A127 at around 5.30am on Saturday.

Essex Police control room staff notified officers who found the black Peugeot 307 and arrested the driver and passenger in Marine Close, Leigh.

A 31-year-old woman from east London has been charged with resisting arrest and has been bailed to appear at Southend Magistrates Court Wednesday May 8.
