It's been reported that the two teenage friends who died at Saltburn were taking pictures when they slipped of the cliff;

New statistics show that the RSPCA received around six thousand and seven hundred complaints across County Durham and North Yorkshire;

...and the union for transport workers has confirmed there'll be more strikes by Arriva guards and drivers.

It's been reported that the two teenage friends who died at Saltburn were taking pictures when they slipped of the cliff.

Harry Watson's mum said that he and Alex Yeoman were "having a laugh together" when they accidentally fell.

The bodies of 17-year-old boys were found at Huntcliff in Saltburn Friday.

Yesterday an inquest was opened into the deaths.

The families have expressed their thanks for the messages of support they've received and have asked to be left to grieve in peace.

Floral tributes have been left at the scene and police ask that any more be left at the bottom of the steps to Huntcliff.

 

New statistics show that the RSPCA received around six thousand and seven hundred complaints across County Durham and North Yorkshire.

They don't show the numbers for Teesside.

But they come after the area has been left horrified by a series of animal cruelty cases.

In February last year brothers Andrew and Daniel Frankish dodged jail after a video surfaced of them kicking, punching and throwing their pet bulldog Baby down stairs.

And in October a terrier named Scamp was found buried alive in Kirkleatham Woods.

Both dogs had to be put down to end their suffering.

In light of the cases Redcar MP is carrying on with her campaign to increase the sentencing for animal cruelty from six months to five years.

 

The union for transport workers has confirmed there'll be more strikes by Arriva guards and drivers.

This means there's likely to be more disruption to Teesside's rail network.

The strike will take place all day on Saturday the 8th of April, however we don't know which services will be affected yet.

It comes after a similar walk out last week where trains between Saltburn, Redcar and Middlesbrough were out of service all day.

The guards and some drivers are striking after the future of the guards’ jobs became uncertain.
