A TEENAGER is being quizzed by detectives after being arrested in connection with a serious sexual assault near Grange Park.

The 16-year-old boy, from Blackpool, was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and attempted rape today.

Police launched an investigation after a teenage girl was attacked on the cut through to Grange Park next to the bowling green off Garstang Road shortly after 9am on Thursday, June 14.

The arrest comes after officers, who believe the incident is linked to an earlier assault in the same area on June 1, appealed to the public for information to help their investigation.
