A 36-year-old woman was assaulted at an address on Pechell Street and this CCTV image of an Asian man has been re-released.

Lancashire Police say they have recently received information to suggest the offender man be from the Blackburn area.

He was wearing a blue top, dark trousers and brown shoes.
