A woman has been sexually assaulted in Bath. The alleged incident happened soon after midnight on Saturday 13th September in the Spring Lane, Larkhill area of the city.
The 28 year old woman was walking home along Charlcombe Lane when she met a man she recognised from earlier that evening from outside the Larkhall Liberal Club. They walked together for a while, then parted. Soon after she was grabbed from behind and assaulted.
He is described as white, in his 40s, short, of heavy build, with fair hair in a long mullet-style at the back. He was wearing light blue jeans and a green or khaki T-shirt.
Bath abbey service was curtailed because of buskers outside. Local authority must do something.
The choral service of Evensong in Bath Abbey was abandoned yesterday because clergy said they could no longer compete with the noise of buskers outside the building. Rector Edward Mason halted Evensong mid-service, asking choir and congregation to leave.
A busker with amplified voice and guitar played and sung in the square before and during the Evensong service outside the Roman Baths adjacent to the Abbey. It is the first time that the noise of buskers outside has led to the abandonment of the centuries old tradition.
I feel like weeping for a city ruined by the clamour of music and weeping for an Abbey that has had a superb ministry of peace, healing and quiet for hundreds of years and which is being subject to the violence of noise.
