The 18-year-old woman was seen with a man in the grass area at Meetinghouse Lane on Thursday between 19:00 and 19:50. She was attacked by the man.

Officers have reviewed CCTV images of the area at that time.

They are keen to speak to two women in their 20s who were talking to each other outside the entrance to the walled area around 19:40.

Det Insp David Wagstaff appealed for witnesses and said his officers were following a definite line of inquiry.
