    Piercebridge-on-Tees is a village in the borough of Darlington which is the ceremonial county of Durham. It is on the site of a Roman fort of AD 260–270, which was built at the point where Dere Street crossed the River Tees. Part of the fort is under the village green. The settlement has been in continuous use ever since.

    • You were a direct victim of a crime of violence;
    • You were not to blame for the incident in question;
    • You sustained an injury while taking an exceptional and justified risk, while trying to remedy or prevent a crime;
    • You sustained a mental injury as a result of witnessing or being involved in the immediate aftermath of an incident in which a loved one is injured; and/or
    • You are the qualifying relative of a victim who has died from injuries caused by a crime of violence.

    You have two years from the date of the incident to make your claim, unless there are extenuating circumstances which meant that you, or someone else on your behalf, could not do so. In this case, CICA will consider a late claim.

    If the crime against you was sexual abuse and you were under 18, you have until you turn 20 to make your claim. This is because CICA recognise that children are not always able to do anything about the abuse until a later stage.
