The man is described as Asian, 5ft 6ins tall, slim build and in his 20s, he was wearing a grey jumper with black tracksuit bottoms. He had black hair and a small goatee beard.

Detective Constable Warren Moore, from Force CID, said: "This was an unprovoked assault against an unsuspecting, pregnant member of the public, who was visiting the area.

"The assault made her uncomfortable and unnerved and has had a lasting effect on her; she is unable to buses through fear of this happening again."
