The attack on the 33-year-old happened last Wednesday evening, but details have just emerged.

The woman was walking through the car park, near the mortuary, when she became aware of the men - one in front of her and one behind.

According to police, the man in front did not approach her, but stayed there while the second man sexually assaulted her.

Both men are described as being foreign, possibly Eastern European, and aged 30-40.

One was approximately 5ft 5ins tall with a shaven head and was wearing a hoody or jacket which may have been red.

The other was around 5ft 8ins tall and slim, with short dark hair and swarthy skin. He was wearing a dark jacket with a zip front and poppers or buttons at the wrists. He spoke in broken English.

Police are appealing for witnesses who saw either the incident at about 8pm, or the two men in the vicinity of the hospital, to contact them or pass information anonymously through Crimestoppers.
