Woman suffers serious sex attack at Latitude festival

A woman was the victim of a serious sexual assault at Latitude festival, police have said.

Suffolk Constabulary said officers were investigating the report of the attack at the festival on Saturday between 10pm and 11pm.

Specially trained officers are looking after the woman and the investigation into the alleged attack in Henham, Suffolk, is continuing, police added.

This year’s festival was headlined by Lana Del Rey, Stereophonics and George Ezra.

Police gave the following advice to festival-goers:

  • Stick with your friends and look out for each other.
  • Be careful. Festivals give you the opportunity to meet new friends but going off alone with people who you’ve just met may lead you into situations you don’t want to be in.
  • Remember no means no.
  • There is safety in groups. Set up camp near friends, make friends with your neighbours and learn the layout of the site so you can find what you need – toilets/ stewards, etc., without getting lost. You can always ask staff for help with directions or anything else you may need.
