So many parts of Harlow, especially footpaths and cycle tracks are not overlooked, and nowhere within shouting distance. It's possible to walk the length of the track without seeing anybody or being near enough to make for a house/pub/shop. A redesign is needed and more reliable lighting. In summer a lot of street lights are blocked by trees.

A description of the attacker would be mighty helpful?

So your asking the public for help but not helping them by giving a discription on the suspect. That makes no sense
