Police are appealing after a 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by a man in Middlesbrough.
The incident happened in an alley off Castle Way at around 9pm last Friday, the 18th of November.
The suspect is described by the victim as "fat", wearing a big blue coat with hooded jackets underneath with the hoods up.
He was carrying a can of Stella and smelled of alcohol.
An unknown male member of the public assisted in pulling away the male suspect and ensured that the victim got home.
Officers are appealing for this member of the public to contact them, or anyone else who may have witnessed the incident, on the non-emergency number 101.
It's been announced that the former Arlington Chapel and School House in Loftus are to be demolished.
Two independent structural assessments, which were commissioned by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, have confirmed the derelict state of the buildings which pose the risk of collapse.
Due to the serious risk to the public, the Council will proceed to demolish the buildings without delay.
Work has been carried out to secure immediate risk items and fencing has been put up to ensure no one can enter the site.
The demolition will take place in the next two weeks and is expected to take approximately eight weeks to complete.
