Appeal for Information on Old Weymouth Bakery After Sexual Assault Allegations

Weymouth Town Centre

If you lived in Weymouth during the 70's you might be able to help a Police investigation into an allegation of historic sexual assault.

Detectives are trying to identify the site of a former bakery that was along the seafront during the 1970's.

It's described as "a red brick building with big doors" and delivery lorries used to reverse up to the shop with cakes and doughnuts.

Avon and Somerset Police says a victim reported sexual offences to them last year and their enquiries form part of their on-going investigations.

They're particularly interested in speaking to a big, bald American man who used to work there. Officers want to stress the man could be a key witness and is not a suspect in the case.

Detective Constable Celia White, from South Gloucestershire CID, said: "I know this was a long time ago but I'm hoping there is someone in Weymouth who remembers something which might help me."

We would also like to hear from anyone with photos of the bakery.

Anyone who can help should contact DC Celia White from Avon and Somerset Police on 101.
