We are back with the late news at 10pm.

:00:00.:00:00.

With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:00.:00:15.

Dozens of runners took to a Derbyshire tow-path today,

:00:16.:00:17.

to show support for a fellow runner who was attacked.

:00:18.:00:20.

The woman was sexually abused in broad daylight

:00:21.:00:25.

just a few days ago, while running alone.

:00:26.:00:27.

Local clubs came together at the canal towpath at abrogate, a sign of

:00:28.:00:40.

solidarity with fellow runner. But before they set off, a message from

:00:41.:00:45.

the victim was read the group. We are determined not to let what this

:00:46.:00:49.

individual did compromise how we feel about our local area. We have a

:00:50.:00:53.

right to enjoy the outdoors without feeling threatened. Or at risk of

:00:54.:00:59.

harm. She is understandably very shaken up by it. She will be pleased

:01:00.:01:04.

to see how many people from different running clubs and members

:01:05.:01:07.

of the public have come to show support. This person was so brazen

:01:08.:01:11.

to even think of doing some like like this with the risk of getting

:01:12.:01:15.

caught. It makes you think that you have to be very careful. Derbyshire

Police are not linking to any recent sexual assaults here, but those

:01:22.:01:24.

taking part today said such high-profile cases have left

:01:25.:01:29.

something that might have left some thinking twice about running alone.

:01:30.:01:33.

I run this root of my own virtually every week. It really makes you stop

:01:34.:01:38.

and think, especially if you were wearing headphones. We don't even

:01:39.:01:42.

contemplate that we are not safe. Suddenly that has been taken away.

:01:43.:01:47.

I'm glad we have come out today to support and hope this little bit of

:01:48.:01:51.

support makes her feel a bit better. It's nice to see so many clubs

:01:52.:01:54.

coming together and showing some solidarity. We are normally rival

new managers share the points. The character that they showed, and

:02:57.:03:12.

:03:13.:03:15.

terms of on the pitch and with the fans, we need that unity and harmony

in the last eight games. We want to win every game but it is a great
