12:00pm Monday 19th August 2013 in News
A MUM has been left angry after having a liquid thrown over her and three young children.
Sonia Barton, 26, from Melton Close, Clacton, was walking along St Osyth Road when the liquid was thrown from a blue van.
It hit her, her one-year-old daughter Frankie, five-year-old niece Tia and nine-year-old nephew Josh.
“I’m really angry - I was just walking down the road and was looking at my phone when it happened”, she said.
“I can’t even walk down my own road safely anymore and just want to warn others.
“They laughed at us and then sped down the road.”
The vehicle is described as a blue transit-style van with writing on it. The passenger, who is thought to have thrown the liquid, is described as a white man in his 30s, with black hair and stubble.
A spokesman for Essex Police said officers searched the area, but the van could not be found.
Anyone with information about the incident, which happened at about 5.30pm on Monday, is asked to call the police.
