A woman was sexually assaulted after getting into a car in the mistaken belief it was a taxi, police said.

The 24-year-old got into a dark-coloured saloon car in Retford, Nottinghamshire, at about 20:30 GMT on Tuesday.

The man, described as Asian and in his late 20s, pulled over on Leverton Road near North View Farm, got her out of the car and assaulted her.

He then drove off but returned to steal her phone and handbag.
