Tributes are paid to former MP Frank Cook who has died

Teesside has been remembering one of the region's best known political figures.

Frank Cook - who served as the Labour MP for the Stockton North constituency for 26 years - has died, at the age of 76.

He was diagnosed with lung cancer early last year and died at North Tees hospital on Tuesday night.

As Stuart Whincup reports, his career before politics was distinctly varied.
