Police enquiries show that a number of people passed by as the attack happened, both on foot and in vehicles, and we’re keen to hear from anyone who was in Denmark Street at about that time.

Detectives from the force said they are especially keen to hear from drivers with dashcam footage or people with mobile phone footage of the area at the time.

Police also want to trace a man as part of their investigation.

He was seen in the area at the time and is described as being in his late 20s or early 30s and about 5ft 7ins tall.

The victim has been referred to specialist support while police carry out their investigation.

Detective Sergeant Toby Hayes of Operation Bluestone, Avon and Somerset Police’s dedicated team of specialist rape and serious sexual offence investigators, said: ‘We’ve referred the woman to specialist support and are carrying out a thorough investigation while being sensitive to the trauma of her experience.

‘This appeal is just one of our lines of enquiry but I would urge anyone who was on Denmark Street between 3.30 and 4.30am to come forward. You might not realise it but you could have the key piece of information we need.’
