Good evening. now time for the news where you are.

0:00:100:00:12

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

0:00:120:00:15

by staff at a former North East detention centre.

0:00:150:00:19

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

0:00:190:00:22

at Kirklevington near Yarm.

0:00:220:00:25

Cleveland Police has described the investigation

0:00:250:00:27

as complex and extensive.

0:00:270:00:30

Stuart Whincup reports.

0:00:300:00:33

Many of the men sent to Kirklevington said

0:00:330:00:35

they expected punishment - but not brutality.

0:00:350:00:39

Some say they were sexually abused, while others claim

0:00:390:00:41

they were regularly beaten.

0:00:410:00:44

You accept punishment.

0:00:440:00:45

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

0:00:450:00:48

But not like that.

0:00:480:00:49

Not like that.

0:00:490:00:51

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

0:00:510:00:54

something else.

0:00:540:00:56

Kirklevington is now a prison, but these allegations date back

0:00:560:00:59

to when it was a detention centre.

0:00:590:01:02

The abuse is said to cover a 30-year period

0:01:020:01:04

from the 1960s to the 1990s.

0:01:040:01:08

Cleveland Police says 355 men have now contacted them

0:01:080:01:12

to say they were abused at the detention centre here.

0:01:120:01:16

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

0:01:160:01:19

who have come forward.

0:01:190:01:21

It says this is a complex and extensive investigation

0:01:210:01:24

and its enquiries are continuing.

0:01:240:01:28

This solicitor says her firm is representing 80 men who say

0:01:280:01:30

they were abused at Kirklevington.

0:01:300:01:33

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

0:01:330:01:36

that they've told.

0:01:360:01:38

Sometimes they've not even disclosed

0:01:380:01:39

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

0:01:390:01:42

that are close to them.

0:01:420:01:43

Cleveland Police say two men previously arrested

0:01:430:01:45

as part of its investigation

0:01:450:01:47

have now been released without charge.

0:01:470:01:50

But it says its enquiries are continuing and high numbers

0:01:500:01:53

of people are still coming forward to report abuse.

0:01:530:01:57

Stuart Whincup, BBC Look North, Kirklevington.

0:01:570:02:03

A 77-year-old man had his life savings stolen by three men

0:02:030:02:06

in a robbery at his County Durham home last night.

0:02:060:02:10

He went to get some coal from his coal shed in Coronation,

0:02:100:02:13

near Bishop Auckland at about 8.30,

0:02:130:02:16

when the attackers hit him over the head with his coal shovel.

0:02:160:02:20

He was then pinned down in his house whilst his belongings were searched.

0:02:200:02:24

The victim was treated in hospital, then released.

0:02:240:02:28

A young County Durham vet who left everything behind to care

0:02:280:02:31

for neglected street dogs abroad is hoping to raise extra funds

0:02:310:02:34

to get generously donated equipment from the North East

0:02:340:02:37

to Southeast Asia.

0:02:370:02:40

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

0:02:400:02:42

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

0:02:420:02:47

It was whilst holidaying in Sri Lanka that Janey was struck

0:02:470:02:51

by the plight of the millions of street dogs and decided

0:02:510:02:54

she had to do something.

0:02:540:02:56

Badger, as he became known, was typical.

0:02:560:02:59

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

0:02:590:03:03

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

0:03:030:03:05

come close to us at all.

0:03:050:03:07

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

0:03:070:03:10

to treat the animals on the street.

0:03:100:03:12

But equipment is basic.

0:03:120:03:14

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

0:03:140:03:16

we don't have gas anaesthetic.

0:03:160:03:17

We have to sort of piece everything together.

0:03:170:03:22

Her inspirational work has led to some generous donations

0:03:220:03:25

of veterinary equipment, but it is piling up

0:03:250:03:26

in a Tyneside lock-up.

0:03:260:03:29

It is amazing to have all this stuff.

0:03:290:03:32

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

0:03:320:03:35

about ?2,500 to ship it over there.

0:03:350:03:40

Back in Sri Lanka, Badger is still wearing his bandage

0:03:400:03:42

and has learned to trust Janey and the volunteers.

0:03:420:03:45

You can see how he is completely transformed

0:03:450:03:47

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

0:03:470:03:52

And that's here on BBC One at 7.30.

0:03:520:03:56

Let's have the weather forecast for the start of the new week now -

0:03:560:04:00

here's Owain Wyn Evans.

0:04:000:04:02

Hello, hello.

0:04:020:04:03

A chilly night to come across the North East and Cumbria,

0:04:030:04:05

we'll see some fog patches forming and some frost as well,

0:04:050:04:08

and we'll be off to a pretty cold start to the day tomorrow morning.

0:04:080:04:11

You can see some blue colours here on the map,

0:04:110:04:14

those temperatures dipping close to, or below freezing,

0:04:140:04:16

and that's even around town.

0:04:160:04:18

Some dense patches of fog, especially across parts

0:04:180:04:19

of North Yorkshire, and you can see the overnight lows here on the map.

0:04:190:04:23

So, tomorrow morning, there is a lot of brightness around.

0:04:230:04:26

Cumbria seeing some lovely blue sky first thing,

0:04:260:04:28

Northumberland, Teesside, County Durham and

0:04:280:04:30

North Yorkshire enjoying this.

0:04:300:04:33

Just getting a bit cloudy across Western parts later.

0:04:330:04:36

Highs of about 7 Celsius tomorrow.

0:04:360:04:39

So, some frosty mornings to come over the next few days,

0:04:390:04:41

and do watch out for those fog patches as well.

0:04:410:04:44

That's the forecast, see you soon.

0:04:440:04:47

And that's all from us this weekend.

0:04:470:04:49

We're back with more in Breakfast tomorrow morning.

0:04:490:04:51

Have a good night.

0:04:510:04:54

Good

0:05:040:05:05

Good evening.
