A man with links to Ilkeston who police wanted to speak to about a rape has been traced after a Crimewatch appeal.

Officers had been trying to trace Daniel Gilbert, 30, to speak to him about the alleged rape of a woman in Derby in 2015.

The appeal was featured on the BBC programme Crimewatch last night. Mr Gilbert was found to be living in the West Midlands and is now helping police with their enquiries.
