With your news now for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.
Dozens of runners took to a Derbyshire tow-path today,
to show support for a fellow runner who was attacked.
The woman was sexually abused in broad daylight
just a few days ago, while running alone.
Local clubs came together at the canal towpath at abrogate, a sign of
solidarity with fellow runner. But before they set off, a message from
the victim was read the group. We are determined not to let what this
individual did compromise how we feel about our local area. We have a
right to enjoy the outdoors without feeling threatened. Or at risk of
harm. She is understandably very shaken up by it. She will be pleased
to see how many people from different running clubs and members
of the public have come to show support. This person was so brazen
to even think of doing some like like this with the risk of getting
caught. It makes you think that you have to be very careful. Derbyshire

I'm glad we have come out today to support and hope this little bit of
support makes her feel a bit better. It's nice to see so many clubs
coming together and showing some solidarity. We are normally rival

together. Police investigating the death

to get to the end in that manner and show the unity they displayed in
terms of on the pitch and with the fans, we need that unity and harmony
