Officers investigating an assault in Poole are issuing an image of a man they would like to speak to.

A member of the public who witnessed the incident came to the victim’s aid and walked with her into town.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
