Police investigating the rape of a 13-year-old girl in a South Lanarkshire park have spoken to almost 300 motorists in a bid to generate leads.

Officers also spoke to 110 people on Thursday night in and around Cambuslang Park, where the teenager was attacked at about 21:00 on 6 June.

Police said a number of calls were made to its incident room and officers were following a number of lines of inquiry.

Earlier, the force issued an e-fit image of a man they want to trace.

Officers want to hear from anyone who may recognise him.

Suspect description

The suspect was described as white, with a local accent, over 6ft tall, of skinny build, with a large nose and short, dark greying hair.

At the time of the attack he was wearing a grey T-shirt and blue jeans.

Police said a man fitting the description of the e-fit image was seen in the area of Fernhill Road, Rutherglen, several days after the attack.

He is believed to have been driving a dark hatchback car.

Officers interviewed motorists and people in and around Cambuslang Park between 20:00 and 22:00 on Thursday.
