A SHOUT for help has sparked a police search in Rayleigh.

The police helicopter can be seen circling the area around Rayleigh Golf Club, and officers are currently carrying out enquiries on foot.

Officers have not yet found anyone in distress, but are continuing with their search.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "Police have attended the Hullbridge Road area of Rayleigh following a report just before 3.25pm today that a person could be heard shouting for help in an area of dense undergrowth close to Rayleigh Golf Club.

I agree. I'm almost 99% sure it's kids mucking around, or something of that ilk. However, what if it were that other 1%? Isn't it better that someone cared enough to do something about it?
