A man dubbed the 'Gimp Man of Essex' has slammed a latex-clad wrongun who has terrorised villages across Somerset in recent years.

The Gimp Man of Essex is a local celebrity in Colchester, where he can sometimes be spotted doing his weekly shop in Tesco while dressed head to toe in black latex.

Going by @GimpManofEssex on social media, he shares footage of his outings and poses for pictures with stunned onlookers.

He also looks to use his fetish for good and often organises fundraisers. There is currently a JustGiving link in his TikTok bio where people can donate to Mind, a mental health charity.

At the time of writing (Thursday, November 17) that fundraiser has received over £750. In total he has raised over £3,500, according to The I.

However, he isn't the only so-called Gimp Man to have cropped up in the UK as of late. And not all of them are acting as saintly as he is.

Police recently announced they were investigating up to 20 reported sightings of gimps in villages between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare since 2018.

In 2019, one victim managed to snap a picture of a man dressed in an all-black latex suit with a full-face mask while a woman saw a similarly-dressed man touching his groin in the street.

Victims have said they were left "absolutely terrified" after bumping into a gimp man in the early hours.

On October 27 this year, Alex Warren, 19, and a pal stumbled on a gimp squirming and speaking in tongues on a patch of grass in the village of Cleeve. A police helicopter and squad car were scrambled resulting in a man’s arrest.

The suspect was released on bail on condition that he does not leave his home between 9pm and 6am while officers probe if all the attacks were carried out by a lone gimp or a gang.

For the Gimp Man of Essex, what his Somerset counterpart has done is "100% wrong".

He told The I: "This guy has undone everything the gimp community is trying to do. It gives us all a bad rep.

"Jumping out on women, however you’re dressed, isn’t right. There are innocent guys like me who go out on walks in their gimp suits. This guy is hiding around in the dark at night and scaring people lifeless. That’s different.

"I wouldn’t be surprised if alcohol or drugs were involved. They are asking for trouble terrorising people like that late at night."
