Essex have issued a nationwide appeal for information about the death of a man who had attended a music festival

Detectives in Essex have issued a nationwide appeal for information about the death of a man who had attended a music festival near South Woodham Ferrers.

Officers have widened the search in an attempt to trace any witnesses from other parts of the country who were at the Brownstock festival at Stow Maries in August last year.

The investigation is into the death of pedestrian Paul Wickerson, 32, who was struck by a car about 20 minutes after leaving the Brownstock festival site on Saturday, August 31.

Mr Wickerson’s parents have released a photograph of Paul in the hope that other festival-goers and motorists might remember seeing him and can help police to find out more about events leading to his death.

Investigations have established that Mr Wickerson, who lived in Australia, left the festival site at Woodham Road at about 10.21pm. He died at about 10.45pm when he was in collision with several cars at Lower Burnham Road, Cold Norton, near the junction with Fambridge Road.

Investigating officer DC Keith Sloggett, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “We are seeking any information as to where Mr Wickerson was during his final hour. We believe that he was walking along the road wearing just a pair of shorts.”
“The investigation is also looking to gain information of how Mr Wickerson arrived at the location where he was involved in the collision which is approximately two-and-a-half miles from the festival. In addition to that we are also keen to hear from anyone who was ejected from the festival that weekend.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Sloggett at the Colchester MIT office on 101, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or email [email protected]

A 48-year-old man from Ilford, east London and a 32-year-old man from Sawbridgeworth, Herts were arrested in October on suspicion of manslaughter.

They have been bailed until February 19 pending further enquiries.

A 29-year-old man from Shoeburyness, Essex was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and a 36-year-old man from Southend, Essex was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. They were arrested on Monday December 30 and have also been bailed until February 19 pending further enquiries.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
