North Yorkshire Police have closed an investigation into a suspected sexual assault after the student involved withdrew her allegations.
The student involved attended York Police Station yesterday and formally retracted the accusation.
“North Yorkshire Police would like to reassure the public and local communities that the sexual assault did not take place and the investigation has now been closed,” said a Police statement.
Police were originally called to Heslington Lane on Tuesday night after a 19-year-old student claimed she was subjected to a serious sexual attack.
The claimed area, near the Fulford Golf Club, was under forensic examination by police officers on Wednesday.
