Police are trying to trace a man following a sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl in Newport.

The girl was waiting at a bus stop on Malpas Road at about 10:00 GMT on Monday when the incident occurred.

The man, described as in his late 20s, of mixed race and with a black beard, was wearing a hooded top and walked off in the direction of Tesco and Subway.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
