Detectives investigating a sexual assault in a Northampton supermarket have released a CCTV image they hope will jog memories of people in the area at the time.

Officers revealed the incident happened at about 5pm on Saturday, June 26, as man touched a woman's bottom while she was with her niece in Tesco Express store in Kingsley Park Terrace.

They believe the hooded male in the image, dressed all in dark clothing, may be able to help with their enquiries and they are appealing for him, or anyone who thinks they may know him, to get in touch.
