A 16-year-old boy from Coleford has been arrested on suspicion of assault and attempted rape. The incident happened in Gloucester Park at around 11pm yesterday.
A young woman was struck on the head during the attack and sexually assaulted. An immediate search of the area was carried out by response officers and the arrest was made shortly before 11.30pm.
The victim has received treatment for her head injuries and is currently being supported by specially trained sexual assault officers.
Postal workers in Bridgwater have voted to go on strike over conditions. The 122 postmen and women say they'll strike for three consecutive Saturdays starting on June 29th.
Postal workers in Somerset are to agree dates to take strike action later.
They'll be discussed at a mass meeting being held at the Bridgwater Royal Mail depot this morning. It's after a dispute over bullying and staffing levels. 80 per cent of workers at the depot have voted to take action in a ballot.
