Police in Clacton have released an Efit image of a man wanted in connection with an offence of sexual touching of a teenage girl.

On Saturday, February 22 two teenage girls were walking along St Osyth Road near to Lake Walk, Clacton when they were approached by a man described as white, about 5 feet 5-6 inches tall, aged 30-40, slightly tanned skin with a spotty complexion and stubble down the side of his cheeks and under his chin. He had short scruffy brown hair, possibly had an ear piercing in one ear and was wearing a black and brown shirt that had torn holes in the back, black/grey tracksuit bottoms in a shiny material, with a lion going down the side (possibly Puma or Lonsdale). When he walked he slightly leaned to one side.

As they are walking towards town, he asked them where the fishing lake was, they said they didn’t know so he just walked off down Lake Walk.

About two hours later, around 4pm, as the girls were walking up St Osyth Road towards the traffic lights at Coppins Road/ Rush Green Road when they were again approached by the same man who tried to engage them in conversation.

He made inappropriate comments to them and as they tried to quickly walk away from him he grabbed at one of the girls and indecently assaulted her.

Police hope that someone will recognise the description of the man and name him. Anyone who has any information is asked to contact Pc Nikki Heath at Clacton Police Station on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A 333 mile journey home for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation finished on Saturday when the Hike4Hopey charity walkers arrived at St James’ Park, Newcastle.

Seven suspected Ukrainian illegal immigrants have been arrested after their yacht ran aground on the Suffolk coast today.

Several people were stuck for reportedly more than an hour on a ride at the Cymbeline Meadow fair, Colchester.

Family of a Suffolk man who died from a brain tumour have attended a ceremony to open a Quiet Room in his memory at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

A spring cleaning campaign across west Suffolk has seen volunteers litter pick and remove more than 460 bags of waste from public open spaces.

Firefighters tackled a “needless” blaze at the former Manganese Bronze plant in Ipswich on Sunday night.

The fire in the top floor of the two-storey derelict building, behind houses on Hadleigh Road, was caused by trespassers.
 The fire was reported at around 5.30pm on April 30 and six crews, including an aerial appliance, were expected to battle the blaze for several hours last night.
 Station Commander Jon Southgate, of Princes Street station, said the fire was caused by someone deliberately or accidentally setting the fire.
 “There are numerous discarded needles around the site and from experience we know there will be needles inside as well,” he said. “We will not be entering the building because I want to ensure the safety of our firefighters. 
 “It is a shame that we are now going to have four crews fighting a completely needless and preventable fire.”

It may have been a forgettable season finish for Blues fans at Portman Road on Saturday – but one moment of magic should cheer even the most desolate of supporters.
