A worried mum fears a children’s play area is fast becoming a no-go zone because of “terrorising” yobs.
The comments from the Heybridge mother-of-three, who asked not be named, come after her 11-year-old son was left terrified after being roughed up on the footpath near Oak Tree Meadow park on his way to Tesco in Maldon.

He managed to run to Tesco and spotted neighbours in the store who walked him home.
