Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in a Norfolk coastal village.
The assault is believed to have taken place on the dunes at Sea Palling last night.
Officers were contacted at around 8.50pm by a member of public, who said her female friend had been sexually assaulted while walking her dogs near the beach around 20 minutes earlier.
The victim has since received specialist support from Norfolk’s sexual assault referral centre, and been spoken to by specially trained officers.
A 58-year-old man from the Great Yarmouth area has been arrested in connection with the incident, which police have described as a serious sexual assault, and is currently in custody awaiting questioning.
Police want to speak to anyone who was in Sea Palling yesterday evening and may have any information. Call DS Ian Cox on 101.
