The hunt is continuing for a suspect wanted in connection with a sex assault in a Norwich cemetery almost a year and a half ago.

An area of Earlham Cemetery was taped off following reports a woman in her 20s had been sexually assaulted at about 6am on Sunday, November 4 2018.

The Dereham Road entrance to the graveyard was cordoned off while officers carried out their investigations.

Police have since identified a suspect who is believed to be living abroad and have been trying to trace the man.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said the “man still has not been located”.
