A murder inquiry has been launched after man died following a suspected stabbing, Essex Police say.

We believe the victim had walked up the pathway, where he was found, from Southern Way and was attacked close to Holly Field near the Pyenest Road end of the track.

A forensic post-mortem will be carried out in the near future to establish the cause of death but all the information we currently have suggests our victim has been stabbed and this is a murder enquiry.

– Detective chief inspector Marina Ericson, from Essex Police’s serious crime directorate, speaking to the Evening Standard
