Woman raped on Brighton beach near Palace Pier
A woman has been raped on Brighton beach, police have said.
The 23-year-old victim was attacked to the west of the Palace Pier between 03:00 and 04:00 GMT on Sunday.
She was approached by a man - described as being in his 20s with dark hair and a foreign accent - after she had left a club to sit by the sea.
He ran off after the attack, and the woman asked a jogger and a nightclub doorman for help, Sussex Police said.
Anyone who was in the area around the time of the attack who has any information is asked to contact the force.
