More than 350 men have now contacted the police to say they were abused

:00:00.:00:17.

by staff at a former North East detention centre.

:00:18.:00:19.

The men say the abuse took place between the 1960s and 1990s

:00:20.:00:22.

Cleveland Police has described its investigation

:00:23.:00:24.

Many of the men sent to Kirklevington said

:00:25.:00:35.

they expected punishment - but not brutality.

:00:36.:00:39.

Some say they were sexually abused, while others claim

:00:40.:00:41.

You accept punishment, because that's why you're there.

:00:42.:00:48.

Being beaten, beaten by a grown man when you're a teenager, is...

:00:49.:00:54.

Kirklevington is now a prison, but these allegations date back

:00:55.:00:59.

The abuse is said to cover a 30-year period

:01:00.:01:04.

Cleveland Police says 355 men have now contacted them

:01:05.:01:10.

to say they were abused at the detention centre here.

:01:11.:01:15.

It says it is now offering help and support to those men

:01:16.:01:18.

It says this is a complex and extensive investigation

:01:19.:01:23.

This solicitor says her firm is representing 80 men who say

:01:24.:01:30.

Often, you get people contacting you and you are the first person

:01:31.:01:36.

that they've told, sometimes it's not even disclosed,

:01:37.:01:38.

the full extent of what happened to family members and other people

:01:39.:01:41.

Cleveland Police say two men previously arrested

:01:42.:01:45.

have now been released without charge.

:01:46.:01:50.

But it says its enquiries are continuing and high numbers

:01:51.:01:52.

of people are still coming forward to report abuse.

:01:53.:01:56.

Stuart Whincup, BBC Look North, Kirklevington.

:01:57.:02:04.

The biggest search by Mountain Rescue volunteers

:02:05.:02:06.

in the region for many years has had a positive outcome.

:02:07.:02:11.

70 people from six organisations searched the Cleveland Hills

:02:12.:02:14.

yesterday morning, in subzero temperatures, for a missing

:02:15.:02:16.

He was eventually found after a ten-hour search and airlifted

:02:17.:02:21.

Businesses in the North East and Cumbria could face

:02:22.:02:27.

a "cataclysmic" shortage of skilled workers after Brexit,

:02:28.:02:30.

according to a former Labour Euro MP.

:02:31.:02:34.

Stephen Hughes told BBC One's Sunday Politics

:02:35.:02:36.

that the region could struggle to fill important roles.

:02:37.:02:41.

I think we're going to have a real problem in attracting the sort

:02:42.:02:45.

Already, 69% of firms are worried that they cannot get recruits

:02:46.:02:48.

That will get worse when we leave the single market.

:02:49.:02:53.

If we put visa restrictions in the way for people looking

:02:54.:02:56.

for jobs, we'll have real bottlenecks in our labour market,

:02:57.:02:58.

and that could be cataclysmic for businesses in the region.

:02:59.:03:03.

Well, the Conservative MP for Carlisle, John Stevenson,

:03:04.:03:05.

said the Prime Minister's approach to Brexit negotiations was

:03:06.:03:07.

a good one and would deliver greater trading opportunities

:03:08.:03:10.

I think she's set out where we are, it's a logical suggestion,

:03:11.:03:18.

what she's suggesting, and I think we can prosper outside

:03:19.:03:20.

the European Common Market, because we'll be able to do deals

:03:21.:03:23.

with other countries, whilst at the same time,

:03:24.:03:26.

I'm sure at the end of the day, we will be able to strike

:03:27.:03:30.

A young County Durham vet who left everything behind to care

:03:31.:03:36.

for neglected street dogs abroad is hoping to raise extra funds

:03:37.:03:40.

to get generously donated equipment from the North East

:03:41.:03:43.

Janey Lowes' inspirational work with some of the world's most

:03:44.:03:48.

unloved dogs is featured on tomorrow night's Inside Out.

:03:49.:03:54.

It was whilst holidaying in Sri Lanka that Janey was struck

:03:55.:03:57.

by the plight of the millions of street dogs and decided

:03:58.:04:00.

Badger, as he became known, was typical.

:04:01.:04:05.

He had really bad skin and he had started to chew his foot off.

:04:06.:04:09.

He actually hated us right at the start, and wouldn't

:04:10.:04:11.

Janey has a local team and is joined by UK volunteer nurses and vets

:04:12.:04:20.

We don't have x-ray, we don't have ultrasound,

:04:21.:04:24.

We have to sort of piece everything together.

:04:25.:04:29.

Her inspirational work has led to some generous donations

:04:30.:04:32.

of veterinary equipment, but it is piling up

:04:33.:04:34.

It is amazing to have all this stuff.

:04:35.:04:39.

However, we've got it stuck in England, because it costs us

:04:40.:04:41.

Back in Sri Lanka, Badger is still wearing his bandage

:04:42.:04:47.

and has learned to trust Janey and the volunteers.

:04:48.:04:51.

You can see how he is completely transformed

:04:52.:04:53.

with a little love and care, on Inside Out tomorrow night.

:04:54.:04:58.

Let's have the weather forecast now, with Owain Wyn Evans.

:04:59.:05:06.

It's not really been a bad day across the North East and Cumbria.

:05:07.:05:10.

We have seen a bit of brightness, especially across eastern parts.

:05:11.:05:13.

Overnight, yes, it's going to remain cold,

:05:14.:05:14.

we are going to see some fog forming, we are going to see

:05:15.:05:18.

And you can see some blue colours here, spread across the map,

:05:19.:05:21.

so the temperatures, of course, dipping close

:05:22.:05:23.

I think the most dense fog patches are likely up through

:05:24.:05:29.

the Vale of York, parts of North Yorkshire.

:05:30.:05:31.

Elsewhere, yes, it's fairly hit and miss,

:05:32.:05:33.

For many of us, it's a bright start to the day,

:05:34.:05:37.

Cumbria and Northumberland seeing lots of sunshine first thing.

:05:38.:05:40.

Getting a bit cloudier across western parts, then.

:05:41.:05:42.

Teesside, County Durham and North Yorkshire hanging on

:05:43.:05:44.

A fairly settled story over the next couple of days,

:05:45.:05:49.

I'll be back with the late news at 10.20.

:05:50.:06:26.

of freezing fog. Already warnings in place from the Met office. I will

:06:27.:06:27.
