A FISHERMAN was rescued by firefighters at a lake in Basildon on Thursday night.
Crews from Basildon and Leigh rushed to the scene in Northlands Park in Felmores just after 2am.
The fisherman had been asleep and woke to find himself surrounded by water.
Do you know the fisherman or saw what happened?
A MAN and his teenage brother were punched in the face in an unprovoked attack.
The two victims, a 20-year-old man and his 15-year-old brother, were near the Westgate car park in Basildon – near the BP Roundacre garage – when they were set upon.
The thug approached the older man and hit him in the face and chest, before punching his younger brother as he tried to intervene.
The thug then ran off toward the Roundacre underpass.
A TEENAGER was stabbed in the back at Basildon railway station.

He was stabbed in the back with a pair of scissors.
The attack happened at 11.15pm on Sunday June 24, 2012.
The teenager suffered minor injuries.
