Police have launched a manhunt after a woman was dragged down the stairs of a London bus and attacked after she and her friend rejected the advances of two men.

A group of women were travelling on a bus in Holland Park, in west London, when two men approached them at around 2.50am on 20 January.

The men became abusive when the women turned down their advances, with one 26-year-old victim being dragged down the stairs, off the bus and then assaulted.

The force has now released images of two men they want to speak to in connection with the attack.

Anyone with information on the males pictured is asked to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
