Colchester: Rail Station Attacker Jailed
A man who threw a brick at a victim's head forcing him to fall onto a train track in Colchester has been jailed indefinitely.
Ian Tomlinson, 24, of no fixed address, carried out three attacks on men at Colchester, Ipswich and Diss and train stations over a ten-day period in June last year.
On one occasion Tomlinson followed his victim off the train at Colchester shortly after midnight.
As the man waited on the platform, Tomlinson threw a brick at his head from close range.
The victim fell onto the tracks where he lay unconscious and motionless on the high-speed line.
As he lay there, Tomlinson climbed onto the track and stole money from him, British Transport Police (BTP) said.
Tomlinson had admitted three counts of robbery and one of theft of a motorcycle.
At Ipswich Crown Court he was jailed indefinitely as he is considered a danger to the public, BTP said. He must serve at least five years.
Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year - nine at Chelmsford Prison.
