A gang have been jailed for more than 80 years for the murder of dad of 2 in North Shields
Middlesbrough Dad's Helmet Campaign
A Middlesbrough man's wearing a helmet for a full month after his baby boy was diagnosed with flat head syndrome
Gary Hamilton's 5 month old son Alfie wears a protective helmet for his skull, which was starting to become misshapen.
It could cause his jaw to become misaligned, dental issues or for Alfie not to be able to wear glasses in the future, if it was left untreated,
He hopes his idea will raise vital awareness of the condition, and thousands of pounds for children who have the condition.
Police say two children are in intensive care after a car hit six people in a crowd in Newcastle.
Two people have been convicted of the murder of Jimmy Prout. Two others have been found guilty of causing or allowing his death
More than 30 people from the North East have been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours List
