Three men were arrested in connection with drug offences following a three-car collision in Colchester.

A white Ford Fiesta and a black Vauxhall Astra came to a stop in Othello Close at around 8.30pm on January 22, Essex Police said.

The occupants then pulled out two passengers of a silver Volkswagen Golf before assaulting them in what officers believe was a targeted attack.

The victims, two men aged 25 and 24, did not sustain serious injuries.

All parties got back into their vehicles and drove off before a collision between all three cars happened in Greenstead Road.

Two men, aged 23 and 24, were subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.
