THREE men are due to appear at Southend Magistrates' Court next month to face charges of affray and assault.

A 39-year-old man from Colchester and 34-year-old man from Canvey will appear in court on Friday, May 2, following a fight in Rayleigh last year.

The incident, which took place at 12.15am outside Bar Blanco, Eastwood Road, on June 30 last year, involved two women suffering facial injuries.

A woman, in her 40s, suffered a broken jaw and needed extensive treatment to damaged teeth, whilst another woman, in her 20s, from Wickford required an operation on a nose injury.

One of the men, Gokhan Gurler, has already been charged with one count of affray and a 29-year-old security guard from Romford is currently on police bail.
