Avon and Somerset police have arrested a 24-year-old man they believe is linked to the serious sexual assault of the teenager.

The incident took place on October 2 at a property in the town.

The man remains in police custody for questioning.

Two men, aged 20 and 18, have also been arrested in connection with the incident and were released pending further investigation.
