DESPERATE jobhunter Anthony Greene took his search for work to the roadside yesterday.

Anthony’s man-with-a-van business went under in November, and he quickly exhausted all the usual ways of looking for work.

So yesterday he tried a new tactic.

He stood in the rain outside Severalls Business Park, Colchester, on the roundabout near the Crescent entrance during the morning rush hour, with a sign around his neck, which read: “Full-time job required. Willing to do anything.”

If you can help Anthony, call the Gazette on 01206 508432 or contact him directly on 07786 324493.
