  • "I know these comments are read by councillors and what I think people are trying to say by joking about these efit and CCTV images is in truth they are so poor they are as useless as nothing at all, I believe they are saying for goodness sakes we all know CCTV has moved on, we all know it's not as expensive as it used to be, were all fairly certain the cable infrastructure could support upgraded HD cameras and digital reciever/recorders without needing upgrading so drasticly reducing expense, so please, please councilors adress this issue with haste to at least help reduce the chances of another girl being attacked for significantly less money than putting more police on the beat. I don't think anyone who has joked about these images recently, and there's been a few, means any disrespect to anyone."

THIS is the face of the man wanted by police over a frightening late-night sexual assault in Bournemouth.

The victim, a 20-year-old Bournemouth University student who lives in Winton, was unexpectedly grabbed from behind by an unknown man and attacked in the subway between Holdenhurst Road and the travel interchange at around 1.30am on Friday.

CCTv was released at the weekend, but has been criticsed for being too indistinct.
