Police investigating a reported assault outside Old Town Park, Bideford, on Saturday, June 26, are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

A woman told officers she was walking her dog when she was assaulted by two other women at around 9.15am and sustained a cut lip and bruising to her face.

Police are particularly keen to speak with two women drivers who may have witnessed the assault and stopped to assist the victim, checked she was okay and waited with her until the suspects left.
