Thanks to Sally for sending me a link to this BBC news article. I walked through Jaywick on day 10 and wrote that it was the most poverty stricken place I’d seen. Having watched the BBC video I think they must have trawled the town to find these people; they seem a lot more sober than everyone I met!
Jaywick was named most deprived place in England in 2010. It lies in the first constituency to elect a UKIP MP.
