A man has denied the murder of 40-year-old Mark Robinson - who died a year after being attacked at a house in Redcar.
36-year-old Ray Whincup pleaded not guilty to the charge in a short hearing at Teesside Crown Court yesterday.
Mark Robinson died in August of last year.
He had been attacked at a house on Station Road in Redcar in July 2020, and suffered head injuries.
Despite lengthy hospital treatment and full-time care, Mr Robinson never recovered and died on August 5th last year.
Mr Whincup appeared in court via videolink from HMP Leeds.
A date for the murder trial to start was set for January 30th next year.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action to assist an injured dog.
North Yorkshire Police contacted the Team at midday yesterday, regarding a report of a dog that had reportedly fallen some distance down a hillside in the Carlton Bank area, whilst being walked with other dogs.
The owner was uninjured but it was initially reported that the dog may have been injured and would need rescuing.
However upon further investigation the dog was found to be well enough to be walked back with the other dogs to the owner’s car to be checked over by a vet.
The call-out lasted just under one-hour.
