Police appeal over holiday sex attack video

Police in Essex are trying to trace a young woman who was videoed being sexually assaulted on holiday in Corfu. Essex Police have been handed footage from a camera which features the "shocking" attack alongside more routine holiday clips.

They are now trying to trace the British victim, who was subjected to the ordeal in Kavos during the early hours of July 30. Anyone with information is urged to contact Essex Police's sexual offences investigation team in Brentwood on 01279 625428 or email

We don't know when the young woman returned to the UK or which airport she flew back into. We strongly believe that she is from the UK.

"The offence took place in a hotel room. We don't though know which hotel it is in Kavos, and there are many."

– Det Insp Hayley King, Essex Police
