Do you recognise this man?
British Transport Police believe he may have information relating to an incident which took place at Darlington railway station, and on board a train travelling between Darlington and Durham.
“The incident took place on Sunday, 14 June, initially in the waiting room at Darlington station just after 11.30am, then on board the 11.40 service between Darlington and Durham.
“A 16-year old girl from Middlesbrough was in the waiting room when she noticed a man was taking her photo and filming her, which understandably made her feel extremely uncomfortable.
“She then boarded the train. The man followed her and stood directly opposite whilst continuing to take photos and videos of her.
“The victim attempted to move carriages but was again followed by the man. At this point she turned around and challenged him about his behaviour. The man alighted from the train at Durham and ran off.
“BTP is determined to stamp out such behaviour. The victim was extremely brave in challenging the man and I would like to commend her for her actions and thank her for coming forward and reporting the incident to us."
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference PSUB/B5 of 2/7/2015.
A memorial garden is planned by students in tribute to their teacher, who died in a fire at a house in Darlington last Friday.
Tim Matthews was a drama and media studies teacher at Egglescliffe School near Stockton, where he taught for 13 years.
As sixth formers continue to sit their A Level exams today, dozens of flowers and messages have been tied to the railings outside of the school.
And among the messages - perhaps one most fitting for a teacher - 'Without your guidance I wouldn't be where I am today.'
The Environment Agency has fished seven supermarket trollies out of a small stretch of a river in Darlington.
A team was dispatched to the River Skerne at Mill Lane, Haughton Green, to remove a fallen tree and shopping trollies from the water.
Lodged downstream of the footbridge over the River Skerne – they were deemed a flood risk after blocking the flow of the river.
The timber was winched from the river and a chainsaw was used to cut it up, before a total of seven trollies were removed.
The willow tree and all the debris caught up in it was creating a blockage which is ultimately deemed a flood risk. We winched the tree free and then followed up by removing the shopping trollies – we thought there were only two or three but in total removed seven altogether."
