Ten years after a 16-year-old girl was raped at knife point in Washington, Northumbria Police are renewing their appeal for help in tracing her attacker.
He is about six foot tall and will now be around 50 years old. The victim, who remains anonymous, is asking the public to help her to make sure this does not happen to anyone else.
