Around 70 people have got in touch with Norfolk police following an e-fit released in a rape investigation.
A force spokesman said that as of March 24 they had received 69 reports since the release of the e-fit on March 17.
The image shows someone officers want to speak to in connection with a sex attack on a teenage girl in an area of disused rail track off Mill Road in Great Ryburgh, near Fakenham at around 3pm on Sunday, February 28.
The e-fit depicts a white man aged roughly in his 50s with balding grey hair and a moustache, who is believed to be around 6ft tall.
Police want to speak to anyone who was in the area around the time of the attack who may have seen something that could help their investigation.
