Loughton man faces charges including murder of schoolboy

Essex Police has been authorised by the CPS to charge a man from Loughton with murder and ten charges of attempted murder plus dangerous driving.

Terence Glover, 51, of Newmans Lane, will appear before magistrates in Chelmsford tomorrow, Friday December 6, charged in connection with a fatal collision in Willingale Road shortly before 3.20pm on Monday December 2.

A local boy, 12-year-old Harley Watson, died in hospital later that afternoon.

Earlier this week his family paid tribute to their “good, kind, helpful and lovely boy”.

The ten charges of attempted murder relate to one woman, six boys and three girls aged between 12 and 23 who were also injured in the collision.

Senior Investigating Officer DCI Rob Kirby said: “I would like to thank the local community for all the help they have given us since this tragic event on Monday.

“So many people have come forward to give us information. I would however like to continue to urge anyone who has not contacted us but may have information which could help our investigation to contact us on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
