Police have confirmed they aren't looking for kidnappers in the Redcar rape case anymore but that they're still investigating the alleged rape.
Cleveland Police have confirmed that they no longer think the woman and child were forced into a car on Redcar seafront.
Instead they're looking into an alleged rape involving two people who may know each other.
The original report said two men forced a woman and her toddler into the back of a car before being raped in Yearby and then forced out of the car almost six hours later.
Police are asking anyone who may have seen a woman and toddler near Roseberry Road in Redcar between 4pm and 6pm to contact them.
Trains between Saltburn, Redcar and Middlesbrough aren't in service on Monday due to a strike.
There will also be limited service between Middlesbrough, Nunthorpe, Darlington and Newcastle.
Northern Rail guards and some drivers are staging the 24-hour strike after the future of the guards’ jobs became uncertain.
However, despite the strikes, Arriva North East has announced that they will accept all valid train tickets on their buses during the strike.
Extra buses will be put on during peak times.
Inspirational women from across Redcar and Cleveland were recognised last night at the second annual Inspiring Women Awards.
The evening which was created in memory of late MP Mo Mowlam celebrated women who've had an outstanding contribution to the community.
Winners include Kat Kempen for her work with the Footprints Community Cafe in Redcar and Vera Rider for her continuing work with groups at the Gleneagles Community Centre.
17-year-old Mia Flood was presented with the 'Inspiring Young Woman' award for raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of her good friend Georgina Anderson.
Finally, the 'Mo Mowlam' award was presented to Linda Dickinson for her work with young people with special needs.
The awards were presented by Redcar Mp Anna Turley.
