A man has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping a woman in Slough.

The victim, in her late 20s, got into a car in Church Street on Saturday afternoon.

She was later found by police at a hotel in Ilford, east London, before being taken to hospital to be treated for cuts and bruises.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to the incident, which involved a Black Vauxhall Astra with a number plate which began FP09.

Det Con Alex Turnbull said: "We are appealing to anyone who may have seen a man approaching a woman on Church Street and then the pair getting into a car matching the description to contact police."

Mr Turnbull said the suspect and the victim were known to each other.

The 23-year-old man from London has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap, false imprisonment, assault, disqualified driving and driving without insurance.

He has been bailed until 12 February.
