The alarm was raised shortly after an alleged sex attack in a car in Endcliffe Park at around 11.30pm on Tuesday, March 29.

Large crowds had gathered in the sunshine in the park that day as lockdown restrictions eased, allowing groups to meet up again outdoors.

The rape is reported to have taken place in a silver or grey Mercedes which had been parked in one of the spaces at the entrance to the park.
