New CCTV pictures have been released of a man police want to speak to about a sexual assault in Teesside.

The attack took place on 7 June, when a woman was left with serious facial injuries and a broken arm in the North Ormesby area of Middlesbrough.

Police had previously released a less clear image of the man they want to speak to, who they believe was in the area in the hours before the attack.

They also said they were following new leads after receiving numerous calls.

Police said the "good quality" images had been provided following the latest media appeal, which also sparked calls from the public.

A man previously arrested in West Yorkshire on suspicion of attempted rape will face no further action.

The Cleveland force appealed for information from anyone who saw the man in the town centre between about 04:00 BST and 06:00 on the day of the attack, particularly around Linthorpe Road or Borough Road.

The victim remains stable in hospital.
