A dog walker pictured in CCTV could be a vital witness to an attack on a woman in Derbyshire, police have said.

The woman was raped near a footpath on Stenson Road, in Sinfin, between 04:00 and 05:30 BST on 13 July.

Images show the man at about 04:50 wearing a blue top, light shorts and dark cap, with a black dog on a lead.

A 42-year-old man from Derby was arrested at the weekend but police have not said what he was arrested on suspicion of.

He was later released under investigation while inquiries continue.
