A woman was helped from her car in Martins Way after it flipped over this morning.


A man was seriously injured in a ‘targeted’ deliberate crash between a car and a pedestrian in Stansted.

The incident happened shortly after 9pm on Saturday, September 2, in Mountfitchet Road.

A light-coloured hatchback, possibly a Volkswagen, was travelling along the road from the direction of Church Road, before turning sharply into Priory Drive and then driving back along Mountfitchet Road towards a pedestrian.

The car collided with the victim and then drove off at speed towards Church Road.

The driver and passenger are believed to have fair hair and be in their mid-20s to 30s.

A man in his late-20s from Stansted was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Essex Police officers believe this is a targeted incident and would like to hear from witnesses or anyone who saw a light-coloured hatchback driving in the area at the time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Crime Department on 101 or email
