Sir David Amess's Campaigning Honoured

Following the tragic death of Sir David Amess, Southend has been granted city status. As the MP for Southend West, he campaigned tirelessly for the change throughout his career. In honour of his work, we celebrate Southend with fantastic scenes from its 1957 carnival.
