She said she was approached by a man she did not know in a woodland area where he raped her.

He is described as white, in his late 40s, of average build, 5ft 5ins, with green eyes.

Det Insp Richard Pringle, of the Maidstone Vulnerability Investigation Team, said: "While this incident happened two years ago, the victim has now been able to assist us in the creation of a computer-generated image of the suspect.

"We are urging anybody who believes they recognise the person or who has any other information to call the appeal line."

Anybody with information should call Kent Police on 01622 604100, quoting crime reference 26/216417/21.

You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
