Woman raped in A27 lay-by near Polegate

A woman in her 20s was raped in a lay-by on the A27 near Polegate in East Sussex.

The woman was walking along the A27 from the direction of Eastbourne on Sunday when she was stopped by two men in a black saloon car.

The attack happened at about 1730 BST, Sussex Police said.

"I'm hoping that someone will remember seeing the woman, who was wearing jeans and a blue hooded top," said Det Chief Insp Jeff Riley.

He said the woman joined the A27 after walking along the A22 and it was unusual to see anyone walking along these roads.

"We are still in the early stages of investigating this report, which is unusual in its nature, and I would urge anyone who saw the woman or two men to get in contact with detectives to help us establish the circumstances," he added.
