A 20-year-old woman has been sexually assaulted in Cheltenham following a night out with friends.

Police said the woman left Lace nightclub at around 0310 GMT with a man who then attacked her in nearby Grosvenor Place South.

The attacker is described as white, in his 30s, of slim build, with short brown hair. He was wearing a blue checked shirt.

Anyone with information was urged to contact the police.

Det Insp Steve Bean said: "Officers are dedicated to locating the offender - we are examining CCTV footage and looking at all forensic evidence."

He urged people to take extra care and to take a taxi or stay with friends rather than walk home alone at night.
