Two teenaged boys have been arrested over the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl in Newcastle.

Northumbria Police said the girl was attacked on playing fields at the Kenton Park Sports Centre near Bradwell Road on Friday.

A force spokesman said the boys, aged 15 and 17, had been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Officers are keen to trace a man seen walking his dog in the area at the time who may have witnessed the incident.
