A company that prints bank notes in the district is marking its 200th anniversary.

De La Rue, which runs the former Bank of England press works in Debden, was founded in 1813 in Guernsey by printer Thomas de la Rue and its first major project was printing a uniform ace of spades playing card.

The printing press in Langston Road has produced all Bank of England notes for the past 50 years.

The reason why we have the ridiculous situation at the Debden junction of the M11 (exit only northbound, entry only southbound) is because the powers that be thought that would stop the gangsters coming out of Essex, robbing the works, then driving back to deepest Essex. It is about time a proper junction was put in at Debden to ease traffic through Epping.

Why do you want to make it easier for the crooks and robbers to escape?

I do not follow.

Having seen these premises, outside, from most angles I think any raid would need an armoured column and regiment to succeed!! Wonder if they have open days?
