Woman questioned over Carlisle rape claims

A woman has been questioned on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and wasting police time after a rape allegation in Carlisle.

The 19-year-old was interviewed on Sunday in relation to an alleged incident in Bartons Place last month.

On Saturday, an 18-year-old woman was arrested over an alleged rape at Town Dyke Orchard car park.

She was held on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and bailed. Police said the cases were not linked.
