Two more men have been arrested in connection with the death of a man following a music festival in Essex.

Paul Wickerson, 32, from Sydney, Australia, was hit by up to four cars on 31 August at Cold Norton.

He had attended the Brownstock festival in Stow Maries earlier that evening.

A 29-year-old man from Shoeburyness has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and a man of 36 from Southend arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

Both have been bailed until 19 February.

A 48-year-old man from Ilford and a 32-year-old from Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, were arrested in October on suspicion of manslaughter and bailed until 28 January.

Mr Wickerson, 32, had been visiting friends and relatives in Surrey before attending the music festival.

Officers from Essex Police believe he was ejected from the event and taken to North Fambridge shortly before the collision on the B1012 at Lower Burnham Road, Cold Norton.
