A man has been arrested in connection with a sexual assault on a woman after she got into what she believed was a taxi in Leeds.

Police said the 20-year-old victim got into a car in the early hours of Sunday after a night out and fell asleep during the ride home.

When she woke, the car was parked in a remote lane and the man got into the back of the car and assaulted her.

A 40-year-old man from Leeds is in police custody.

The arrest follows an appeal for information by police and the release of an e-fit image of the driver.
