Woman allegedly raped in Wimbledon campsite (Reuters)

A man has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman who was queuing for tickets to see Andy Murray win the Wimbledon final.

The woman, 34, had been queuing overnight in a makeshift campsite set up for people wishing to get last-minute tickets to the final.

Hundreds of people had gathered in south west London in the hope of getting in to see the final, in which Murray beat Novak Djokovic in three straight sets.

The alleged victim told police how the man, 30, had come into her tent and attacked her. She contacted police in the early hours of the morning.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "Police are investigating an allegation of serious sexual assault in Wimbledon Park, off Church Road, in the early hours of Sunday July 7.

"A 30-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and has been taken into custody at a south London police station.

"He was bailed until early September pending further enquiries." The woman is being cared for by a specialist team, he added.

Two tents were taped off by police, a witness told the BBC. He revealed that his wife had heard a commotion and another man trying to help the woman. She heard the victim say: "Have you had your fun? I'm calling 999."
