Detectives are urging pub-goers in South Ockendon to come forward after a disturbance at the Woodlands Edge in December.

A member of staff was assaulted between 10.30pm and 10.40pm on Saturday December 7.

The woman, aged in her 40s, suffered a minor injury after being pushed to the floor during a disturbance.

A man in his 20s then went outside and was seriously assaulted, leaving him with a fractured skull and facial injuries.

Enquiries are continuing and available CCTV footage has been reviewed, but if you have dashcam and were in the area, or witnessed the assault inside or outside the pub, we your help.

We are particularly keen to speak to a man who was seen leaving the pub shortly afterwards, who is believed to have short shaven hair and a jacket with a fur hood.

Please call Grays CID on 101 and quote 42/193627/19 for the assault inside the pub or 42/193621/19 for the assault outside the pub.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
