PC Byron Taylor from the Moorlands Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “This was a horrible experience for the girl who is still caring for her injury.
“The investigation into those responsible has been extensive but we’re still keen to speak to anyone who was at Tittesworth Reservoir around the time of the incident.”
