The man, from Poulton, was arrested after a 19-year-old woman told police she had been attacked in the park last week (Tuesday, November 9).

The next day, police arrested the man on suspicion of rape and he was taken into custody for questioning.

He has since been bailed "pending further enquiries", said a Lancashire Police spokesman.
