POLICE are appealing for information after a clubber was hit over the back of the head and robbed at a cashpoint.

The 20-year-old victim was withdrawing money from the Natwest cash machine in High Street, Southend, when he was struck on the back of the head.

The callous thief then stole £20 from him.

The next thing the victim remembers was being treated by staff at Mayhem nightclub for a head wound.

The robbery happened between 1:45am and 2am on Saturday.

Anyone who was in the High Street at the time and saw anything suspicious or who has any other information is asked to call PC Victoria Leese at Southend Police Station or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
