Fears on social media that a pensioner became a victim of attempted raped in her own home are unfounded, police say.

It had been posted that an elderly lady living in Hampton Close, off Edinburgh Drive on the Windsor Estate had been the victim.

A police spokesman said no such crime had been reported in that area in the last year.

He said: “We can’t trace an incident on our records.”
