POLICE are appealing for witnesses to an assault at Folly Farm, which occurred at midday on Sunday, August 5.

A woman has reported that, while she was leading Peppa Pig characters into the indoor picnic area following a show, a young child bumped into the person dressed as George Pig, and fell over.

The victim says a man reacted to this by pushing a fire door into her, preventing her from entering the building. He is reported to have pushed the door onto her several times.

No injuries were sustained during the incident.

Officers are looking to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time who might have seen what happened.

Call the non-emergency police number 101, quoting reference 222 of Sunday, August 5 with any information.
