Version 0 of 5.

A 17-year-old boy has been convicted of attempting to murder a woman he raped and bludgeoned with a paving slab.

He searched for internet videos showing the rape of "helpless" women in weeks leading up to the attack, Leicester Crown Court heard.

The woman was left for dead in undergrowth in Leicester's Victoria Park and was only found when a cyclist saw a pool of blood.

Jurors took three hours to reach a verdict.
