A woman has appeared in court charged with murdering a two-year-old boy in Guisborough.
39-year-old Carol Hodgson appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.
The appearance follows the death of toddler Daniel James Hodgson Green after an incident at a dormer bungalow in Upper Garth Gardens in the town.
Dressed in a grey jumper Ms Hodgson, of Upper Garth Gardens, spoke only to confirm her details at the hearing, which lasted just one minute.
Ms Hodgson was remanded in custody and the case was sent to Teesside Crown Court, where there will be a further hearing today.
Police are appealing for witnesses to a single vehicle collision in Eston yesterday morning in which a man sadly died.
It happened on Fabian Road and involved a silver Ford Fiesta.
The car travelled into the oncoming carriageway before colliding with a road sign at the junction of Churchill Road, then came to rest on a grassed area outside an address on Fabian Road.
The 49-year-old driver was treated at the scene by ambulance service colleagues and by paramedics while en route to James Cook University Hospital but sadly he was declared deceased just after 7.30am.
A male passenger is receiving treatment at hospital for what are believed to be minor injuries.
Officers are appealing for anyone who saw the Fiesta from around 6.35am, or the collision itself to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
A plea has been made to the public following repeated violent attacks on firefighters in Middlesbrough.
Since the start of the year, Cleveland Fire Brigade say there has been 20 incidents of youths deliberately setting fires and ambushing crews with bricks, bottles and stones when they attend the incidents.
Engines have also been damaged and taken off the road for repair, putting a further strain on resources.
Out of the 20 incidents, 17 have been in the Hemlington area of Middlesbrough.
