Colchester: Appeal over racially aggravated assault

19:03 03 February 2013


POLICE are appealing for witnesses to the racially aggravated assault of an Asian woman in Colchester.


A woman, aged 30 from Colchester, was struck to the back of the head while in Military Road at around 4pm on January 28.

She fell to the floor and was shouted at.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 25-years-old and wore a woolly hat, brown jacket and beige trousers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pc Karen Mortimer at Colchester police station on 101.



Fears were raised over the impact the strikes would have on A&E departments.

Strike action by thousands of junior doctors has been suspended so talks can continue, the Government and the British Medical Association (BMA) have announced.
