The funeral has taken place of Eston man Steven Willis.
27-year-old Steven, also known as “Picko”, died on April 16 following an incident in Normanby.
His funeral took place at St Bede’s Chapel at Teesside Crematorium yesterday and was attended by scores of mourners who attended to pay their last respects.
Tributes from Steven’s mother Lisa and his Nana were also read out.
Eight people have so far been arrested in connection with Steven's death.
Five have been charged with alleged murder and wounding with intent.
A sinkhole has appeared on a road in Saltburn with what is described as a large cavern underneath.
The hole appeared at the junction of Avon Street and Albion Terrace on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon.
It measures about a foot across and is four to five feet deep, and water can be heard running underneath it.
Redcar and Cleveland Council have confirmed that they are working with Northumbrian Water to establish what caused the problem and the investigation is ongoing.
A group of knitters from our area are already in the mood for the upcoming royal wedding.
The Nunthorpe & Marton Knitters group have kitted out Nunthorpe railway station in patriotic style, complete with flags, bunting and a selection knitted versions of members of the royal family.
The display runs along the length of platform 2 of the station, and features a balcony scene, including the Queen, Prince Philip and other members of the royal family, and even a corgi.
You can see pictures of the knitted display on the Zetland FM Facebook page.
