The 15-year-old girl told police she was sexually assaulted.

The girl told police that she was walking with an older boy, whom she knows, through Brearley Park to an alleyway between the park and Durham Avenue.

She then alleges that he sexually assaulted her.

Two dog walkers were seen walking towards the alleyway at around the time of the incident. They were a man, a woman and one dog and police want to speak to the pair in case they have seen or heard something which could help with the inquiry.
