Great Yarmouth police yesterday cordoned off an area of the town's Beaconsfield Road recreation ground to search for forensic clues.

The 31-year-old victim had been walking from the nearby Golfers Arms pub with a male friend who had said goodbye to her before she entered the recreation ground on her own.

The attack by two men happened at about 1.20am yesterday in an area of the park next to Midland Close.
