Witness appeal following assault on teenage girl in Epsom

Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses after a teenage girl was assaulted by two men in an unprovoked incident in Epsom.

The victim was walking along Upper High Street towards Alexandra Road on Thursday 21st August around 11.45pm.

She was approached by two men who pushed the 16 year-old to the floor from behind leaving her with cuts to her face, hands and knees. The men laughed at the victim and ran off.

Both men are described as white, approximately 20-years-old, 6ft tall, of average build with a local accent. Both were wearing dark or grey coloured tracksuit bottoms.

This was a nasty and unprovoked attack which left the teenage victim shaken.

The two men showed no remorse for what they had done by laughing at the girl afterwards before approaching cars made them panic and run off.

I would urge anybody who was driving along that road at the time to get in touch with any information you have.

– Detective Constable Kirsty Webb, Surrey Police

Ruler Of The World wins Epsom Derby

Ruler Of The World provided Aidan O'Brien with a fourth Investec Derby and maintained his unbeaten record under Ryan Moore at Epsom - with favourite Dawn Approach well beaten.

Dawn Approach failed to settle from very early on and Kevin Manning felt he had no option but to take up the running on the approach to Tattenham Corner, with the writing being on the wall some way out.

Centenary of suffragette's death marked at Epsom

The centenary of the death of suffragette Emily Davison, who threw herself in front of the King's horse at the 1913 Epsom Derby in her push for women's right to vote, has been marked with a new plaque at the racecourse.

The plaque has been attached to fencing at Tattenham Corner at Epson Downs Racecourse ahead of today's Derby.
Davison's ultimately fatal act shocked the nation but saw her hailed as a heroine among the suffragette's movement.


Report calls for Epsom Hospital to lose A&E and maternity wards

Epsom Hospital is under threat of losing its Accident and Emergency and maternity units if recommendations published today are followed.

The Better Standards Better Value (BSBV) review on services at the hospital has released the draft pre-consultation report.

The report recommends that the hospital becomes an elective care centre with St Helier becoming a local hospital. Both of which would lose the A&E units if the recommendations were followed.

The BSBV is a review of local healthcare services across Epsom and surrounding areas and South West London. It is led by local doctors, nurses and other health workers.
