Police say they "urgently" need to speak to potential witnesses to a sex attack on an eight-year-old girl in a Greggs bakery shop.

Detectives from West Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses in CCTV footage taken on Friday, 12 February to come forward.

The attack happened soon after 3.30pm while the girl was sitting with her younger brother in Greggs in The Headrow in Leeds while their mother paid at the counter.

A 34-year-old man, from Bradford, has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and is currently on police bail.

Three people are seen on camera - a dark-haired man in a dark coat who seemed to be with a woman with short, grey hair and glasses, and a blonde woman wearing a large white scarf.

Detective Inspector Dave Cowley said: "We are continuing to investigate the full circumstances of this incident and urgently need to speak to the people who are shown on these CCTV images as being in Greggs at the time the incident occurred.

"We believe these people may have information that could assist the investigation and we would like to speak to them as potential witnesses at the earliest opportunity."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Kelda Hardwick at Elland Road police station on 101, quoting crime number 13160073167.
