POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted as she sat at a bus stop in Morecambe.

The 26 year old victim was sitting at a bus stop on Fairfield Road in Heysham between 6pm and 11.15pm on November 19 when a man approached her.

He said hello then groped her breasts and tried to put his hand up her jumper.

The victim fought him off and sustained a head injury. Police have released a CCTV image, taken from a filling station on Oxcliffe Road, of a man they are keen to speak with in connection with the incident.
