Detectives investigating the rape of a woman in Hastings have released an image of two men they want to trace.

Sussex Police said the woman met two men when she was out in Hastings on Friday night and was taken to a flat where she was assaulted.

After the attack, she was taken in a car to Stanley Road, where she managed to phone for help.

Five men from St Leonards were arrested and bailed on Monday.

Det Insp Dave Wilkins said the woman, in her 20s, had gone to French's wine bar in Robertson Street on Friday evening, and then to Walkers wine bar where she got into a conversation with two men.

Her partner reported her missing just before midnight.

Police found her in Stanley Road at about 06:00 BST on Saturday after she phoned for help and an ambulance was called.

Mr Wilkins said police wanted to identify two men seen in her company in the early hours of Saturday.
