WITNESSES are being sought to an assault and robbery in a park in Jaywick, near Clacton in the early hours of this morning.

A 21-year-old man was walking through the park near to Cross Ways, Jaywick when he was set upon by up to four men.

All four were described as white – three were aged 20-25 and they all wore bandanas across their faces.

Another was medium build, around 5ft 10ins and wore a peak cap with a gold “New Error” badge.
