“When he was arrested, he was found to have cannabis in his pockets as well as a canister of CS spray.”

Police say Mr Goodwin has links to addresses in Islington, north London. He is described as white, approximately 5ft 9ins tall, of average build and has brown hair.

Anyone with information in connection with Mr Goodwin’s whereabouts has been urged to contact Essex Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
