Woman, 19, cautioned over Ramsgate false attack claim

A 19-year-old woman has received a formal reprimand from police after she falsely claimed she was the victim of a sexual assault.

The teenager told officers she was attacked in Boundary Road Park, Ramsgate, Kent, by a man in his 40s in the early hours of Friday.

Kent Police said it was no longer appealing for information about the alleged sexual assault.

The woman was formally cautioned for wasting police time on Saturday.
