We’re appealing for information following a sexual assault on Stoke Road in Gosport.

Inspector Matt Wake said: “This was a very upsetting incident for the victim, who has now bravely come forward to report it to police.

“We have a very distinctive description of a man we want to speak with, and are asking anyone who may have seen this man in the Stoke Road area around the time of the offence to make contact with us.
