A MAN was left with a broken collarbone after he was threatened at gunpoint during a terrifying armed raid.

The recovery truck driver had been called to Archers Fields on the Burnt Mills industrial estate in Basildon at around 7.50am on Wednesday.

But when he got out of his vehicle he was attached by the gang of men, one of which had a handgun.

One of the gang battered the terrified man with an iron bar leaving him with a broken collarbone.

Police are now probing the armed raid.
