An e-fit of a man police want to trace has been released after a 27-year-old woman was raped on her way home from a nightclub in Bexleyheath.

The victim, 27, was walking home in the early hours of February 3 when a man in a car pulled up and offered her a lift.

She accepted but the driver failed to take her where she asked to go and instead went to a secluded car park near Longleigh Lane to rape her.

The woman escaped the car and went to a mini-cab firm from where police were called.

Detective Constable Chris Hammond said: "We are issuing this e-fit in a bid to identify this man.

News Shopper:

"I appeal to anyone who was in the area of Longleigh Lane in the early hours of Sunday, February 3 and who recognises this man to contact police immediately."

It is the second time in nine months a woman has been raped near Bostall Woods car park and council officers are now reviewing the lack of security measures.
