CUMBRIA Police have urged victims of sexual offences to come forward following the sentencing of a teenager yesterday.

This follows a sentencing of a Dalton man earlier this week who was sentenced to seven years and six months in prison for rape, assault by penetration, and kidnap.

Cumbria Police said: "We are continuing to encourage all victims of rape or sexual offences to come forward - after a teenager was jailed for attacks on two girls.

"The boy, aged in his late teens, received a three year jail term at Carlisle Crown Court."
