A man is being hunted by police after a 42-year-old woman was raped.

She was so traumatised by the attack in Paisley, Renfrewshire, on January 29, that she only reported it to police recently.

The attack took place between 4pm and 7pm in a lane between Lansbury Gardens and Larkin Gardens in the Shortroods area of the town.
