A YOUNGSTER has been left distraught after losing his late dad’s watch on Clacton beach.

Charlie Vickers, 12, from Braintree, lost the silver Rotary watch close to Martello Bay, near Vincent Road, on Sunday.

Mum Kerry said: “The watch has huge sentimental value as his dad only passed away in November of cancer.

“It means everything to Charlie.”
