LONDON, April 26

In Essex and Kent the air raiders encountered numerous anti-aircraft guns, shells bursting in every direction, many near to one Zeppelin, whose crew were baffled and unable to shake off the searchlights which rendered flight at a lower altitude too dangerous.. Another Zeppelin from southeast approached Kent in the darkness. There was a terrific explosion through a bomb dropping in the sea. Anti-air-craft guns and searchlights were busy and the raider rapidly disappeared- inland and north-' wards. No bombs were dropped from this or the third Zeppelin inland which was clearly seen flying low. On searchlights picking it up anti-aircraft guns began heavy firing. The raider rose rapidly, turned and disappeared. Official—The raiders dropped over one hundred bombs in the Thames Estuary last night, but there were no casualties. NORFOLK AND SUFFOLK RAID. LONDON, April 26 A hundred bombs have been found since the Norfolk and Suffolk raid took place. There was one casualty. The damage consisted of a horse killed and a haystack destroyed.
