Teenager raped in lay-by after A197 lift offer


A driver who raped a teenager is being sought by police in Northumberland. The 18-year-old was walking along the footpath of the A197, near Morpeth Golf Club, early on Saturday, when a man stopped and offered her a lift. She accepted, but after driving a short distance he pulled into a lay-by – thought to be a gravelled area near Plessey Woods – and raped her. The man is in his late 50s or early 60s, short, and of big build. He was driving a dark-coloured car.
