A £10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a teenager wanted in connection with the murder of a man in Essex.

Bradley Blundell has evaded police since August last year when 34-year-old John Pordage from Galleywood was shot and killed outside a BP petrol station in Great Baddow, Chelmsford.

Mr Pordage was shot in the chest at 2am on Saturday, August 5.

Blundell, 18, who has links to Chelmsford and Great Baddow, is 5ft 11ins tall and of slim build.

Detectives are urgently trying to trace him in connection with the murder.
