Police are hunting a man after a woman in her 60s was raped in Wanstead Park last year.

Detectives investigating the rape have released an e-fit of the suspect.

The woman was attacked in July 2022 at around 2pm while walking along a secluded gravel footpath near to Ilford Golf Course, the Met Police said.

She has been supported by a specialist officer since the outset of the investigation.

A spokesperson for the force said officers do not believe the attack is linked to any other reported incidents.
