“Mindless” people are putting lives at risk in Dunmow, according to police.

Officers have been told that a rope has been tied across a road at a zebra crossing in The Causeway, close to The Maltings.

The rope is being put up overnight and motorists are having to take avoiding action.

Sergeant James Ireland said: “It is fortunate that to date this wreckless and mindless behaviour has not caused serious injury to someone or worse.

“Motorists using this road at night are reminded to be vigilant, especially those on a motorcycle.

“These people are potentially putting lives at risk and this has to stop.”
