Corfu Sex Attack Video Given To Essex Police
Police are trying to trace a young woman, believed to be British, who was videoed being sexually assaulted while on holiday in Corfu.
Essex Police were handed footage from a video camera in August which features the "shocking" attack alongside more routine holiday clips.
They are now trying to track the woman who was subjected to the ordeal on a hotel bed in Kavos during the early hours of July 30.
It is suspected that her attacker was a fellow Briton who was holidaying with a group of friends.
Most of the people staying in the resort at the time are thought to have been British.
Police have been investigating for months but have now decided to make their appeal public.
Detective Inspector Hayley King said: "We don't know when the young woman returned to the UK or which airport she flew back into. We strongly believe that she is from the UK.
"The offence took place in a hotel room. We don't though know which hotel it is in Kavos, and there are many."
In a bid to help the victim identify herself, police have said she was wearing a number of coloured wristbands obtained from local clubs.
