Crossroads The incident happened on the B1012 near South Woodham Ferrers

A pedestrian has died after being hit by as many as four cars near a music festival in Essex.

The incident happened on Saturday on the B1012, Lower Burnham Road at North Fambridge near South Woodham Ferrers at about 22:45 BST.

Police said the pedestrian was a man in his 30s from Surrey "in collision with at least four cars".

Officers believe the man had attended the Brownstock music festival at Woodham Road, Stow Maries.

"He may have walked towards Fambridge, either across the fields or along the roadside," a spokesman said.

"He was wearing blue denim shorts and might have been bare-chested."

The road was closed for eight hours while police carried out initial investigations.
