A teenage boy has been arrested on suspicion of rape after a girl was attacked while walking home from an end of school beach party.

The teenage girl was walking alone down the Wivenhoe Trail, a footpath which runs alongside the River Colne, at about 23:30 BST on Tuesday.

She and a friend had been to the party at White House beach, Alresford, Essex.

The attacker ran off when a group of young men heard the girl's screams for help, said Essex Police.
