A man who was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault following a TV appeal has been released.

The 24-year-old man was arrested after a woman, in her 20s, was attacked outside Cameo nightclub in Bournemouth in the early hours of 1 January 2020.

The arrest followed a BBC Crimewatch Live appeal to trace a man captured on security staff's body-worn cameras.

Dorset Police said the arrested man, from Southampton, was released under investigation while inquiries continue.
