A good Samaritan who helped an alleged rape victim in Northampton to report the crime is being sought by police.

The driver of a dark Vauxhall Astra was flagged down by a distressed woman in Upper Mounts, in the early hours of Thursday, January 7.

The man, who police say could have key information about an alleged rape of the woman, picked her up at the back of Northampton Crown Court before taking her to a safe place where she could report the crime.

The driver of this vehicle, or anyone who knows who he is, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
