Detectives have launched an appeal for information following a sexual assault on an 18-year-old woman.

It is believed that the suspect then drove her to the Euston area in the silver vehicle where he sexually assaulted her. Following the attack, he then took her to Gloucester Place in Westminster where he pushed her from his vehicle and drove away at around 3.55am
The suspect is described as dark European, possibly Turkish, aged around 50, of a large build with stubble and dark thinning greying hair that was gelled back.
