It was just after midnight and the victim was on Victoria Street when she realised a man was following her.

PC Laura Richardson said: "The victim repeatedly told the male 'no' and pushed him away, but was understandably very shaken up by this incident.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen what happened. I believe there may be a number of witnesses as other people were leaving the station at the same time that night."

Anyone with information should email laura.richardson2@herts.pnn.police.uk, call the police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. The crime reference is 41/33154/19.
