Three men were taken to hospital with head and facial injuries following an assault in Braintree during the early hours of this morning.

One of them, a 26-year-old, suffered serious head injuries and is currently in a stable condition.

Police officers and paramedics were called to the High Street at 12.40am after receiving reports of a disturbance.

The High Street has been closed while police carry out forensic investigations at the scene.

It is believed that the disturbance started in Bar Sport in the High Street before spilling out into the road.

A number of witnesses have already been spoken to but the area was busy at the time and detectives would also like to speak to anyone else who saw what happened, either in the bar or outside.

Witnesses are asked to call Braintree CID on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Police are hopeful that the High Street gradually be reopened as the day progresses.
