Lancashire Police are appealing for information following a serious sexual assault in Clitheroe.
The incident occurred on 8 February at around 11.30pm, after the victim - a woman aged in her 20s - got into what she believed was a taxi outside the White Lion pub on Market Place.
She gave the driver of the car her address, but he drove to a deserted country lane close to Eddisford Bridge, where he sexually assaulted her. Thankfully a passing car startled him and he then took the victim home.
The car is described as silver and the driver is described as Asian and aged in his 40s.
The force are now appealing for anyone with information about this incident to get in touch with us straight away.
Det Sgt Sarah Hargreaves, of East Division CID, said: "The victim in this case was put through a horrendous ordeal and has only just felt able to report it.
“We are now determined to find the person responsible and are asking for the public's help. Perhaps you saw the car outside the pub or in the area of Eddisford Bridge between 11.30pm and midnight that night, perhaps you have dashcam of a vehicle you think may be the car in question, or maybe you think you know who is responsible.
"If you have any information at all, please get in touch with us.
