A woman has been raped by a man she had seen while walking through a town centre in the early hours.

The woman was attacked in an alleyway in Tunbridge Wells.

She first saw the man in Mount Pleasant Road at about 02:00 GMT on Friday. Two passers-by walked her to Camden Road, but she later saw the man again. He raped her near Albion Road.

An 18-year-old man has been arrested and remains in custody. Kent police are trying to find witnesses.

Det Insp Geoff Payne said: "We would also particularly like to speak to two men, who before the incident, came forward to offer assistance to the victim and walked with her."
