Police have appealed for information after an 11-year-old girl was sexually assaulted on a bus in broad daylight.

The girl was travelling on the 343 bus along Thurlow Street in Southwark, central London when she was assaulted by a man aged in his mid to late 20s, police said.

The Metropolitan Police have released an image of the suspect, who is described as a black man with short dark hair, who was wearing a striped, collared top, following the incident at around 8.30am on June 30.
