This is the scene where a woman in her thirties was allegedly raped in the early hours of Saturday morning.

A police investigation has been launched after a report of a rape on June 14, in Replingham Road, Southfields, at between 1-2am.

Wandsworth Guardian:

The road is currently lined with Wimbledon flags in advance of the tennis championships which begin on Monday

It is believed the victim was walking home when she was attacked in the road which is lined with shops.

A policeman stood outside the scene, a flower stall next to a 24 hour supermarket, all day on Saturday.

The flower stall was closed on Saturday while staff sold flowers next to the stand.

Neighbours to the scene stated they were confused, with many unaware of what had gone on days later.
