A Teesside man has appeared in court charged with the murder of another man in Redcar at the weekend.

The body of David Andrew Crockett was found at a first floor flat in Westbourne Grove on Saturday.

The 64-year-old was discovered by Cleveland Police officers at about 1330 BST. It is not yet known how Mr Crockett died.
