The three men were seen leaving the scene on foot towards East Hanningfield.

Landlady Rosemary Cotton told the Essex Chronicle: “I was cleaning the pub in the morning and heard a loud bang.

“There wasn’t much I could see because the large tractor was in the way, but I suspect they were probably both going too fast. It is a very dangerous little bend.”
