South Wales Police drop BlackBerry bath attack inquiry

Police have dropped an inquiry into footage showing a woman being attacked in a bath, after discovering it was an old case already dealt with by the courts.

South Wales Police had initially appealed for help after a worried parent alerted officers to the film found on a BlackBerry phone.

It shows a young woman in a bath being repeatedly beaten by two other women.

It has now emerged that the film was shot in Liverpool and those responsible have been prosecuted.

A spokesperson for South Wales Police said: "South Wales Police is no longer investigating this assault.

"It has been confirmed that the incident took place in Liverpool and the people responsible have been dealt with by court."

The police said they would also like to thank the public and media for their help in the investigation.
