Investigation into 'sex attack' in Southampton park dropped

An allegation of a sexual assault on a woman in a park in Southampton is no longer being investigated by police.

The incident was alleged to have taken place just after midnight on Sunday, near to the Lord Palmerston statue in Palmerston Park.

The incident was reported by a third party in good faith, police said.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said detectives would be taking no further action in regard to the matter "having investigated thoroughly".
