A teenager was raped in Bournemouth shortly after she was reported missing.

The police received a call expressing concern for the well-being of the 17-year-old shortly before 1 pm Paris time.

Half an hour later, the call managers received a call from the girl "very distressed" saying that she had been raped in a downtown property.

Dorset police said the girl was supported by specially trained police officers and investigations were ongoing.
