Det Con Chris Archer said: “More than 7,000 people were in attendance at the event when this incident happened, so there will certainly be at least one person who saw this assault take place.

“If that is you, or you have any other information relating to this, it is absolutely essential that you come forward to the police, so that we can act.”

A suspect description has not been released by police.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101 and quote incident number 804 of August 20.
