A 31-year-old man who was arrested by police in connection with an alleged sexual assault in Haverhill will face no further action.
The attack happened in the town when a 19-year-old woman was walking along Crowland Road between 3-4am on Sunday.
The woman had been returning home after a night out in the town centre with friends when she was approached by a man who assaulted her.
