OLD audio cassette tapes were found in woods in Basildon.

The police are appealing for their owner to come forward after the items were found among other property in a wooded area between Fairlop Gardens and Broadmayne.

One tape has a label on the spine reading "Messages from the family in Wales on Alison’s birth (also very young ‘A’ reciting)”. The other is labelled "Grandad etc…JB”.

Anyone who thinks these items might be theirs should contact Ds Mike Wilkinson at Basildon CID on 101.
