POLICE are hunting a man after multiple women became "unwell" after their drinks were spiked at a bar in Essex.

Several women are said to have fallen ill after enjoying a night out at the Slug & Lettuce on High Street in Brentwood.

It is understood that their drinks were spiked at the cocktail bar on August 7.

One woman in her 20s is said to have become unwell at around 11.15pm, shortly after a man approached her.

They also encouraged any other punters who felt unwell after attending the venue to report it if they have not done so already.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the man in the picture is asked to contact Essex Police and quote the crime reference number
