Detectives investigating reports of a serious sexual assault in Faversham say no attack took place.

Part of the town centre was cordoned off after reports of an assault against a woman in her 20s in Preston Street.

The incident was alleged to have taken place late on Saturday.

Kent Police later tweeted: "Following an investigation into a report of a serious sexual assault in Faversham, it has been established that no assault took place."

Officers said the cordon in Preston Street had been taken down.

A spokesman for the force said there had been a full investigation and it had been established that no crime had occurred.

He said there would be no further action by police.
