The men are described as white, mid 20s, slim build, one wearing jeans, a hooded top with a white t-shirt underneath and the other was wearing a dark coloured hoody with the hood up.

Investigating officer Pc Dan Smith said: “Whilst the woman was not hurt she was frightened and I would appeal for anyone who was in the area or knows who is responsible to contact me at Colchester Police Station on 101.”
