Dorset police have issued a picture of a woman they want to talk to about an attack in which a man was hit over the head with a riding crop.

They say the man from Somerset was struck by a woman on horseback in an unprovoked attack as he watched the Portman Hunt near Sturminster Newton last December.

Police have released the photo after extensive inquiries and are appealing for witnesses.
