Police have named a woman who died on Wednesday in Redcar.
Cleveland Police said Barbara Davison died on Wednesday at William Street and a man is now being quizzed after being arrested for her alleged murder.
Her family have spoken of their loss following her death.
The man arrested over the alleged murder is still in custody being questioned detectives investigating the case.
The 59-year-old was detained in Station Road, around half a mile away from William Street, following the discovery of Mrs Davison's body.
Network Rail has apologised after a key level crossing in Redcar was stuck in the closed position for nearly two days.
The crossing, which replaced a notoriously unreliable one in December 2015, closed on Monday, and stayed shut until the early hours of Wednesday.
It meant one of the key routes through the town was blocked, forcing drivers to follow diversions.
New windproof barriers were installed at the crossing in late 2015 as a replacement for ones which regularly broke down, especially in high winds.
Large numbers of people are expected to gather in Eston tomorrow as a major running event takes place.
The SABIC Eston Nab Challenge takes place tomorrow.
Members of the public are invited to come along from 10am to cheer on the runners and enjoy the fantastic event village in Eston Square.
There will also be market stalls, tempting treats, free family fun and the Eston Residents Association heritage exhibition and competition.
The event will be taking place between 10am and 4pm.
