News: Bitter Fighting As Royalists Advance

17th January 1989: Republican resistance grew stronger as the Royalists continued to advance in Operation Teal. After a day of bitter hand to hand fighting the Gurkhas captured Stansted Airport from elements of the Republican Parachute Regiment and The King's Regiment began advancing along the A1060 London Road after clearing Bishop's Stortford of enemy troops. To the east Royalist armour captured Maldon before swinging back along the A12 cutting Republican forces in Chelmsford off from reinforcements.
