Three men have been arrested on suspicion of gang raping a woman at the Henley Royal Regatta.

The men were arrested just hours after detectives released CCTV footage of three men they want to speak to about the alleged rape near the River Thames.

The alleged assault took place on the last night of the prestigious regatta celebrations on Sunday, July 2.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, was assaulted when she walked to a car in a nearby residential street, police said.

She had been partying in the Chinawhite enclosure of the event.

She was found by a member of the public near a pub just after 2.30am, who called the police.

Two men, aged 23 and 24, from Bedford and a 26-year-old man from Loughborough have all been arrested on suspicion of rape.

They have since been released under investigation.

The Henley Royal Regatta is a prestigious rowing event held annually on the River Thames, with Prime Minister Theresa May among this year’s guests. 

DI Ali Driver, from Oxfordshire Force CID, said: “The victim is being supported by specially-trained officers at this time.

“If you have any information about this incident, please come forward and speak to officers as this could assist with our investigation.”
