FORMER Kursaal Flyers’ drummer Will Birch officially opened the Poplar Adolescent Unit at Rochford Hospital.

Run by South Essex Partnership Trust, staff at the unit include child and adolescent psychiatrists and other child and adolescent clinicians.

Mr Birch, who is also an author, songwriter and record producer, cut a ribbon to mark the occasion before a plaque was unveiled and guests toured the unit.

He said: “Having been closely associated with the life of Ian Dury, who faced many challenges, it gives me great pride that a unit like this is available for local kids.

“I know, having seen the facilities here first hand, the unit will provide the expertise these young people need to help them through their adolescent years with the support they deserve.”

The trust provides mental health services to people all over south Essex.

Oh come on :)

"She was sharing her spin dry with a guy in a tie-dye
When she saw my reflection in the chrome
I knew that she'd seen me 'cause she dropped her bikini
The one that I got her in Rome

Little does she know that I know that she knows
That I know she's two-timin' me
Little does she know that I know that she knows
That I know she's cheatin' on me

When she finished her laundry she was all in a quandary
And made it for the street like a hare
Her escape was so urgent, she forgot her detergent
And dropped all her clean under- weah -ah"
