A commuter has been robbed in Braintree.

The Halstead man was walking toward his work on the Park Drive industrial estate, Braintree, around 9.30am on Monday when he reached an alleyway behind Braintree train station when he was pushed to the floor from behind.

Two people then held him face down while his wallet was removed and cash taken.

He can only describe his attackers as having local accents.
