A teenage girl has reported that she was subjected to a "serious" sexual assault in Essex last month.

The attack happened in Great Wakering at 22:30 GMT on Friday 14 October but the girl was too upset to report it until Friday 11 November, police said.

Forensic investigations are being carried out in the vicinity of an alleyway leading off Alexandra Road.

The attacker is described as a white man in his late 20s, 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins tall and of skinny build.

He was said to have bushy eyebrows and was wearing a black Nike tracksuit with a hooded top, police said.
