Detectives, investigating the rape of an 18-year-old woman as she walked through a park in Southampton, have issued a fresh appeal for information.

They are warning other women and girls in the area not to walk alone in the dark there until the offender is caught.

Hampshire Police believe the attacker, who was captured on camera following the teenager, may have followed other women the night before he struck.

The attack happened on Sunday 2 December in Riverside Park, just off Woodmill Lane.

Officers are appealing to the community to come forward with any information.
