Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with an attempted rape in 2011.

The victim was grabbed from behind in a pathway between Caledonian Road and Mureil Street, Islington, at about 10.10pm on October 11 that year. She managed to free herself and run away.

The suspect is described as a skinny white male aged about 20, who was wearing a grey hoodie.
