The damage caused by the attack, which happened between 11pm on Tuesday, June 16, and 9am the next day, is estimated at �500.

A spokesman for Essex police said: “Someone has maliciously entered this man's garden and deliberately poured something toxic into the water. It is callous, criminal and anti-social.”
