Police have arrested a man following an alleged rape in a Blackpool park.

A 25-year-old man from Blackpool was arrested yesterday on suspicion of rape and has been bailed until August 11.

The children’s play area at Revoe Park, Central Drive, was taped off on Wednesday as detectives investigated allegations a young woman had been sexually assaulted.

The woman, in her 20s, called police on Tuesday to report the rape, which allegedly took place in the early hours of the morning.

Police had covered two slides on opposite sides of the play area with sheets as part of the ongoing investigation.

A police car was parked nearby, with an officer watching over the area during the day.
