Two sex attacks in Worcestershire 'could be linked'

Two recent sex attacks in Worcestershire might be linked, police have said.

A woman in her 30s was walking through the Lansdowne Road underpass in Worcester at 12:35 BST on Thursday when she was seriously sexually assaulted.

She also had her handbag, containing a purse and a mobile phone, stolen.

Police said they were keeping an "open mind" about possible links with a serious sexual assault on Monday on a towpath at Cookley near Kidderminster.
