Flowers have been left at the Guisborough home where a two-year-old boy tragically died this week.
Police have remained at the property on Upper Garth Gardens following the incident which happened just after 10am on Wednesday.
Emergency services were called to the dormer bungalow which remained taped off yesterday as officers continue to guard the scene.
The boy has not yet been named by police and his death is being treated as unexplained.
A 39-year-old woman was also found at the property with injuries and remains in hospital.
The extent of her injuries is not known.
Plans for a new £8.6 million swimming pool for the Greater Eston area have been confirmed.
The new pool is designed to replace the closed Eston Swimming Pool which would have cost more than £3 million to repair.
It will be an upgrade on the previous pool as it will meet Sport England's 'competition standard' specification, meaning it could host major gala events.
The swim centre, which will be built on the site of the old one if planning permission is granted, would have a 25-metre swimming area with six lanes, a changing 'village' and capacity for 150 spectators.
It is expected work will begin next winter and it will open to the public in 2024.
Large-scale improvement works at the A171 Swans Corner Roundabout in the Nunthorpe area are set to begin.
The improvements are designed to accommodate future traffic growth and involves removing the existing roundabout and replacing it with a lozenge-shaped island as well as widening approach roads.
In addition, pedestrian crossing facilities will be installed on both Ormesby Bank and the A1043 Nunthorpe Bypass.
The work will be carried out by North East firm Esh Construction on behalf of the council. Traffic management will be in place for safety reasons.
The works will enable the roundabout to better accommodate both existing and future traffic growth resulting in reduced traffic congestion and quicker journey times.
