Girl, nine, sexually assaulted on Lowestoft bus

A nine-year-old has been sexually assaulted on a bus travelling from Suffolk to Norfolk.

The victim got on the X1 bus from Lowestoft to Great Yarmouth on Sunday afternoon with her father and brother.

The family sat on the top deck with the girl sitting at the back and the father and brother at the front.

The girl's attacker, who had been talking to the family before the bus arrived, sat next to her before sexually assaulting her.

Police said the girl was too scared to say anything until she got off the bus.

Officers want to trace a man described as a light-skinned black male in his 20s, about 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall, of slim build and with short hair.

He was wearing a red England top, black faded jeans and carrying a rucksack.
