A man has been arrested after a woman was raped on Tyneside.

The woman, in her 20s, is believed to have been attacked at an address near Newcastle Sixth Form College in the city centre in the early hours of Friday.

Police have appealed for a group of "Good Samaritans" to come forward - three men who helped her into a taxi. They also want to speak to the driver who took her home to South Tyneside.

A 51-year-old man is in custody.
