A 13-year-old girl was raped by a teenage boy in a late-night attack in London Fields.

Detectives are investigating the sexual assault, which they believe took place between 9pm on Saturday July 16 and 1am the following morning.

Officers taped off an area of the park, near Landsdowne Drive, for most of Tuesday last week while they combed for evidence. The attacker is believed to be 15.

Enquiries are ongoing. No arrests have been made.
