Police have released this CCTV image of a man they would like to speak after a 61-year-old from Scotland was raped in Hove.

The woman reported that she was the victim of a rape in the early hours of Wednesday, January 9th.

She said she met a man in the Old Steine area of the city and went with him to a bar in St James's Street at around 10pm.

They then left in a taxi and went to a property in the Blatchington Road area of Hove where she was then assaulted.

Det Const Kerri Bartup said: "Investigations have been on-going since the victim reported the assault to officers a few days later. She has been very affected by the incident and we are hoping that by releasing the CCTV image that someone may recognise the man we wish to speak to.

"If you have any information that could help us with our enquiries please call 101 quoting serial 936 of 10/1 or alternatively leave an anonymous message with the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 111555."
