Police are investigating after a woman was assaulted by a group of men in Lichfield.

The woman was confronted by a small group of men before being assaulted.

Alternatively, if any person wishes to provide information anonymously, they can do so by telephoning Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

    Is this Leyfields in Lichfield (the road between Dimbles Hill and Curborough Road and very much in the Dimbles) which doesn’t have anything resembling a park area on it or is this in fact Leyfields in Tamworth?

    It does have a sort of Park, Andy, well a bit of open space with some paths and a couple of dog poo bins. The North Lichfield Initiative have it a bit of a make over a couple of years ago.

    it is sort of along the length of the hill, behind houses. It was just a bit of land with nothing on it and the Council wanted to designate it for more house, but there is hardly any open space around there, so the NLI  got in and did some landscaping, put paths in and that. Volunteers did much of the work.,+Staffordshire,+United+Kingdom&ll=52.69198,-1.827255&spn=0.001288,0.003468&t=h&z=19

    Can we please have a description of the attackers, or does that fall foul of equality claptrap?

    The police have not released any other information at present. When they do, we will report it.
