THREE men from Worcester have been released on police bail after a teenage girl was allegedly raped in the car park of Worcestershire County Council’s headquarters.

The alleged incident happened in the car park at County Hall, off Spetchley Road, on Tuesday, December 27 last year.

Two 18-year-old teenagers and a 27-year-old man  were arrested yesterday morning (Wednesday) on suspicion of rape, arranging and facilitating the sexual exploitation of a child and conspiracy to supply class B drugs.
