Police have made a fresh appeal for information after a teenage girl was raped near a rail track.
An investigation was launched after the sex attack at Mill Lane in Great Ryburgh at around 3pm on Sunday, February 28 near an area of rail track.
Officers want to speak with walkers, horse riders and drivers who were seen in the area at the time.
They are particularly keen to speak with anyone who may have seen a man described as white, approximately 6ft tall, aged roughly in his 50s with balding greying hair and moustache.
Det Insp Lewis Craske, of Norfolk Police's major investigation team, said: "We’ve carried out a number of enquiries including interviewing witnesses.
"We are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the Great Ryburgh area at any point during February 28.
"It may be that someone witnessed something which initially didn’t seem important, but on reflection could be relevant to our enquiry.
