The jury has retired to consider its verdicts in the case of a mother from Grimsby and her ex-partner, accused of feeding drugs to four-year-old Poppy Widdison before her death.
Michala Pyke and John Rytting both deny child cruelty by administering or encouraging Poppy to take prescription or controlled drugs. Poppy died in June 2013 after suffering a cardiac arrest. In tests after her death, seven drugs including diazepam and temazepam were found in her system, and heroin was found in her hair. The two defendants blame each other for the drugs getting into the four-year-old's system.
Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted and robbed near Grimsby’s Fishing Heritage centre.
The incident happened close to the bandstand at around 6.35pm on Tuesday, as the 20-year-old woman walked from the town centre towards Sainsbury’s car park.
A man believed to be in his late 20s approached her and touched her inappropriately, before grabbing an electric toothbrush from her bag and running towards the town centre.
He is described as white, of skinny build, 5ft 6in tall, balding, with short cropped hair. He wore a black, waist length zip-up hooded jacket and dark clothing.
