North Cumbrian pensioner held on rape charge

A pensioner has been arrested on suspicion of raping a teenage girl.

Police said a man, 71, from Wigton, was held over a report at the weekend that a girl, also from north Allerdale, had been sexually assaulted “over a period of several months”.

Officers were immediately deployed to speak to the girl on Saturday, and carry out a number of forensic searches at a house in the Aspatria area. A police spokeswoman said: “The girl is being supported by family members and specially-trained officers at this time.”

The man was placed on bail until March 28 while inquiries continue.
