HUGE UPDATE: We passed a million views, Southend News Network is DELIGHTED to confirm that the song will be released officially in time for Christmas and the festive charts! FIND OUT MORE

Take a look at our very special (and sweary) Christmas song about the national disgrace that is the Dartford Crossing and SHARE AWAY as much as you can!

It has exploded on Facebook since Friday morning, thanks in no small part to the performance of Essex singer Annie Humphrey of Frog On A Rocket who took the Chief Reporter’s lyrics and added her own unique touch of comedy and frustration that represents the sheer horror that tens of thousands of people encounter there every day.

Remember, if you can’t share it from the video above, just cut and paste the following long and bulky link (sorry) directly onto your Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/southendnewsnetwork/videos/1159893347423470/

When we get to 1,000,000 views on Facebook we have a very special announcement to make. It’s even more special than finding out that one of the number plate cameras hasn’t picked up your car’s details and you have saved £2.50.

It’s even more special than driving a foreign car across and then not being able to call the payments number from abroad because you can’t dial an 0300 number from outside the UK!

Anyway we’re staying tight-lipped for now.
