The 30-year-old man, from Essex, was arrested on suspicion of rape and has been taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Detectives launched an investigation after the incident at Vauxhall Holiday Park between 12.30am and 1.30am on Saturday, during the Kiss Weekender.

A 20-year-old man, who is from Manningtree, Essex, was earlier arrested and released without charge.

The victim, a 20-year-old woman, was attending the Kiss Weekender when she was sexually assaulted by a lone male.

Police have not released any further detail about the victim.

Scenes of crime officers were at the scene over the weekend and a seal was in place.

Hundreds of people attended the music event and officers carried out on site enquiries as well as speaking to local residents door to door.

The Kiss Weekender was a three-day event, from Friday to Sunday, and was advertised strictly for over 18s only.

A spokesman for Vauxhall Holiday Park said; “We are naturally very upset by what happened at the Kiss Weekender which was being held at the Park.

“We have, and will continue to co-operate fully with the police and provide them with any assistance we can to help them resolve the matter.”

The DJ-led weekend consisted of two rooms of dance music, with a pool party on Saturday.

Individual day passes were not sold for the event, with full weekend passes the only option.

The victim is being supported by specially trained police officers and her family.

Police are keen to speak to anyone with any knowledge of the incident.

Witnesses should contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
