A 15-year-old boy has been charged with the manslaughter of a Polish man who was attacked in Essex.

Police said they had been authorised by prosecutors to charge a 15-year-old boy from Harlow with manslaughter in connection with the death.

The teenager, who cannot be named because of his age, will appear at Chelmsford Youth Court in January.

Mr Jozwik, who was also known as Arek, was taken to Addenbrooke”s Hospital in Cambridge following the attack and died from head injuries.

His family described him as a hard-working man who loved spending time with them.
