Dedham dinner debacle - woman arrested
A woman has been arrested after diners failed to pay for a meal at an upmarket restaurant.
Four people, three men and a woman, dined at Milsoms in Stratford Road, Dedham, on the evening of February 16.
They ran up a bill of £520 including quaffing two bottles of Don Perignon champagne, three bottles of wine and ten courses between them.
However, they then forgot their manners and left without paying the bill.
Now a 46-year-old woman from Colchester has been arrested on suspicion of making off without payment. She was bailed until April pending further inquiries.
