Whitton child sex attack victim alerts police 40 years on

A woman who was sexually assaulted as a child in Teesside has come forward 40 years after it happened.

Police said the victim was 10 years old when she was attacked by a man in Whitton, near Stockton, sometime in 1973 or 1974.

It is thought the man drove a van selling groceries to people in Whitton and nearby Stillington, in the early 1970s.

Cleveland Police encouraged victims of historical abuse to come forward.
