Girl aged eight 'raped in park'

Two boys aged 10 have been arrested after an eight-year-old girl claimed she was raped in west London.

Police were called by the girl's family after she returned home from playing in a park off College Way, Hayes, at about 1400 GMT on Tuesday.

The two boys have been released on police bail until mid-November.

The alleged attack is being investigated by the specialist rape unit at Scotland Yard, which is known as Project Sapphire.
