A man who was arrested by police on Monday in connection with an investigation into reports of sexual assaults at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey, has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
While Surrey Police revealed that the man had been interviewed and bailed until 21 September 2015, neither the police force nor the hospital would comment on whether the arrested man was an employee at the hospital.
“We are not in a position to comment further on the statement from Surrey Police at this stage of the investigation, except to say that the hospital took steps as soon as an allegation was made to ensure that no patients could subsequently be at risk.”

"We have specially trained officers who deal with reports of sexual assaults and I would urge anybody who feels they have ever been a victim of such an incident to report it immediately in the confidence that we will take it seriously and investigate it fully.

Police forces across the region are carrying out their summer anti-drink and anti-drug driving campaigns.
Surrey Police sent out a message on social media to remind the public of the potential penalties for disobeying the laws against driving with drugs in the system. New laws regarding driving under the influence of drugs were introduced on 2nd March.
Drink Or Drug driving carry the same penalties. They also carry the same risks of causing death or serious injury http://t.co/nJPecYovxF
The new laws cover seventeen legal and illegal drugs including cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine. The limits for all illegal drugs are very low – taking even a very small amount of an illegal drug could put a driver over the limit, and liable for prosecution.
