We are continuing to appeal for information to find Martin Stokes in connection with an attempted murder investigation in Brentwood.

Senior investigating officer DCI Stuart Truss said: “Stokes continues to remain at large in connection with an attempted murder investigation and I really need your help to locate him.
“I believe someone has information about his whereabouts and I’d urge you to come forward.
“That night our officers faced a chaotic scenes, with large numbers of people fighting. During the melee a man suffered life-threatening injuries and he has been left with physical and emotion trauma.
