Serious sexual assault in Grimsby

Officers investigating a suspected serious sexual assault at Grimsby’s Welholme Galleries are keen to speak to two potential witnesses who were walking in the area around the time of the alleged attack.

Police were called to the scene at around 1am on Wednesday following reports a woman had suffered a serious sexual assault in the grounds of galleries, at the junction of Hainton Avenue and Welholme Road.

Investigations have revealed two people were walking from the direction of Welholme Galleries towards Sainsbury’s at 12.34am, who may have seen the suspect and the victim in the area.

The suspect is thought to have run away from the galleries towards Sainsbury’s at around 12.40am, before walking in either the direction of Welholme Community Primary School or left into Heneage Road.

The suspect is described as mixed race, in his twenties, around 5ft 3” tall, of stocky build with short, dark hair.

He wore baggy trousers and a light coloured T-shirt. He also spoke with a foreign accent.

As he left the scene, he was believed to be carrying a jacket.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.

Line to 'remain closed for some time' after train derailment

Trains between Lincoln and Grimsby will remain severely disrupted for the rest of the week after the derailment of a freight train yesterday.

Services remain suspended on East Midlands Trains between Lincoln Central and Grimsby Town and the line will 'remain closed for some time'.

Once the on-site investigation is completed and we are given permission to remove the wagons from the site, the area will be cleared and the track will be repaired and tested before the line reopens. This process is likely to take some time and we cannot yet give accurate timescales as to when the line will reopen, although we expect it to remain closed for at least the rest of the week and we will update passengers as soon as we have more information.

– Network Rail spokesperson

East Midlands Trains services cannot run between Lincoln and Grimsby Town, because of a derailed freight train at Welton.

The Rail Accident Investigation Branch are currently investigating the cause of the incident and then Network Rail and the freight operator will work to remove the train and reopen the line as quickly as possible.

However, we have been advised the line may remain closed for some time.
