ESSEX POLICE are on the lookout for two suspects who were filmed aggressively harassing another motorist.
The shocking scene, caught on dash cam, was branded “unreal” and “frightening” by followers of the Essex Police Twitter account. It shows two people in an Audi A1 repeatedly cut-up, brake check and block the dash cam user on a stretch of the busy A127 near Leigh-on-Sea. On one occasion the Audi is positions to block both lanes of the dual carriageway.
The aggressors can be seen getting out of the Audi on more than one occasion and approaching the other vehicle. On the third attempt, one man in a grey tracksuit is shown trying to strike the dash cam user’s car with a water bottle.
Do you recognise the men in this dash cam footage?

Twitter users were shocked by the driving caught on camera.
Frightening who one has to share the roads with. Hope he is found and suitably dealt with.

Wow that’s an unreal reaction to have on a road. What on earth were they thinking?
