BEDFORDSHIRE police are appealing for three good Samaritans to get in touch with them after they helped a Sandy woman who had escaped her attacker by jumping from a moving car.

The young woman, say police, had been involved in a domestic incident and had been bundled into a car and driven to Luton late on Friday, March 23, or in the early hours of the following morning.

She managed to escape from the moving car at a roundabout near a garage in Luton but has not been able to identify the exact location to investigating officers.

As she was lying on the ground, a woman driving a red car slowed down and said she was going to call the police for help.
