CCTV images have been released of two men police want to speak to about a claw hammer attack in Essex.

Officers were called to The Downs in Harlow at lunchtime on Thursday after reports a man had been attacked.

Emergency services attended and the man was taken to hospital in London with stab wounds, Essex Police said.

His injuries are not thought to be life threatening. The men on the CCTV images are thought to be in their late teens or early 20s.
