A dark coloured Renault Laguna, which was believed to be stolen, collided with a car and a lorry. Three men ran from the vehicle.

A driver of a Nissan Patrol vehicle followed the men, two of whom ran towards Bentley and stole a red, F registration Metro from Bentley Autos.

The Nissan driver tried to block the vehicle, but the Metro made off towards the Colchester direction.

The two men were both white and one wore a fawn jumper.

The third male, described as white, in his 30's and wearing a dark blue shirt and dark trousers, was carrying a jacket as he ran into Bentley long wood.

A can driver informed police that he picked up a hitch hiker fitting this description at around 1pm in Bentley and gave him a lift to Benton Street, Hadleigh.

Police units and the police helicopter searched the area to locate the offenders to no avail.
