Northamptonshire Police has launched a fresh appeal for footage after a woman was sexually assaulted in a Northampton park.

A spokesman for the force said a woman in her 30s was subjected to a “serious sexual assault”.

Detective Inspector Liz Basham, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are treating this incident with the utmost seriousness and a dedicated team of detectives are assigned to the case.

“I am now appealing to anyone in the Eastfield Park area to check their doorbell, CCTV and dashcam cameras to see if they captured anything suspicious in the area that night.
