Reports of a sexual assault caused Newington Green to be closed by police on Tuesday.

People were kept awake by the Metropolitan Police helicopter hovering overhead and found the green, which is bordered by Newington Green Road, taped off by police forensics teams when they woke up.

Officers confirmed that the force’s serious offences, exploitation and child abuse command had attended after an allegation was made of a sexual assault on a woman at 1.15am on Tuesday.

Police said that the allegation was later withdrawn.
