The brother of a Polish man who died after being attacked in Essex says he has installed CCTV at his home because he no longer feels safe.

Arek Jozwik, 39, died from head injuries after he was punched and fell to the floor in Harlow on 27 August.

A 15-year old boy arrested over the attack has been re-bailed.

Mr Jozwik's brother Radek said he had installed cameras at his home following the attack as he felt "nervous, especially if I'm out at night".

"After my brother passed away, I did not feel safe. I don't know what's going on at night - that's why I have CCTV," he said.

Following Mr Jozwik's death, police officers in Poland came to Harlow to patrol the streets to "reassure the community".

Poland's ambassador also visited The Stow in Harlow, where the attack took place, to lay flowers.

Radek Jozwik said he could not be sure if his brother was attacked because he was Polish as the family was still waiting for results of police investigations.

"I looked out for him because he didn't speak English that well. He was happy here," he told the BBC.

"I don't have any idea why he was killed. It was the first time he'd left his home to go out at night for pizza.

"I miss him all the time."

An Essex Police spokesman said the force had provided a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for decision on the case.
