A man has been arrested this morning (Tuesday) on suspicion of raping a woman in Wembley on the evening of the great storm 24 years ago.
The 51-year-old was held by Thames Valley Police officers after they swooped on his home in Hemel Hempstead.
Officers are questioning him in connection with the sex attack in which a 25-year-old woman was raped after leaving Wembley Park Tube Station on October 16, 1987.
The attack took place on the evening of the great storm which saw a hurricane sweep through southern England leaving 13 people dead.
