Rape investigators want to trace taxi driver

A taxi driver may hold key information for detectives investigating a rape in Essex.

Police in Braintree are hoping that a taxi driver can help provide vital information after a local woman in her early 20s was raped in the early hours of Saturday, August 28.

Investigators would like to speak to a taxi driver who picked up a man and woman from outside Braintree Town Hall between 2am and 3am and took them to the Bocking Churchstreet area.

The taxi driver was an older man and driving a dark blue or silver estate car.

That man, or anyone who recognises him, is asked to contact police at Braintree on 0300 333 4444 and speak to Pc Anna Davison.
