In today's Gazette: The teenager accused of killing Jay Whiston outside a house party in Colchester has been publically named.
Edward Redman's identity was protected but he has now turned 18 and the court order banning his identification has been lifted.
Redman, 18, of Wayland Drive Stanway, denied murder when he appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court.
* More people in Colchester are getting on their bikes - and more are falling off.
Police say one negative side effect of the town's cycling boom is a sharp increase in the number of riders getting hurt on the roads.
* Clacton has been described as a dumping ground for the vulnerable and a haven for benefit migrants.
A report by the Centre of Social Justice, called Turning the Tide, says the once flourishing seaside resort has suffered decades of decline.
* A man has admitted three sex charges involving 14-year-old Georgia Hedges who died after trying to hang herself.
Bramwell Walls, 38, admitted two charges of sexual activity with the teenager and a third of inciting her to engage in sexual activity.
