Four men have been arrested in connection with a robbery.

The men were stopped by police in The Cloisters, Braintree, at around midnight on Tuesday.

Residents reported seeing a police helicopter hovering around the area for around 30 minutes.

Essex Police says one of the men arrested was released without charge but three others remain in custody for questioning.

It comes following an incident in Harlow on October 9 in Katherines Hatch which saw a man pulled into a vehicle and threatened with a knife.

His phone, wallet, and keys were stolen.
