A woman has been raped in the early hours of the morning, police have said.

The 19-year-old was attacked in Slatyford, Newcastle, just before 02:00 BST. It happened on a path near the A1, around the area of Bowness Road and Tebay Drive.

A number of people were thought to be in the area at the time and may have information, a Northumbria Police spokeswoman said.

The force has appealed for anyone who saw anything to contact police.
