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

to see how many people from different running clubs and members


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

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

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


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
