A man has been sentenced to four years in jail for assaulting disabled Gateshead pensioner Alan Barnes. Peter Harris will join us live from outside Newcastle Crown Court.
And Newcastle Airport says nearly 50,000 holiday makers will pass through this Easter weekend - one of their busiest times of the year.
Cleveland Police says it could take several hours to recover an overturned tanker on the A19 southbound between Middlesbrough and Yarm.
One lane of the road will reopen at 13.30, the other lane will remain closed until 22:00.
There are still significant delays.
Here is a short look back at how the Alan Barnes story developed over the last few months.
Mr Barnes, 67, has lived with disabilities from birth after his mother contracted German measles when she was pregnant. He is visually impaired and stands 4ft 6in (1.21m) tall.
But now he has a new opportunity in life after Katie Cutler, 21,began a campaign to raise £500 but ended up raising more than £300,000.
Ms Cutler, a beautician, said it showed "there are so many lovely people out there". "
The sentencing of Richard Gatiss,who has been jailed for four years for attacking Alan Barnes, has been welcomed by Northumbria Police.
Supt Richard Jackson said: "This should send a message out to those criminals who think it is acceptable to target the vulnerable.
"I'd like to thank the public for their help and support throughout the investigation and I hope that today's proceedings bring some closure to Alan and his family."
Mr Barnes confirmed his injuries had almost fully healed and he had found a house in Gateshead, that he wanted to buy with the money that had been raised.
He said: "My injuries have just about 100% recovered. It was my collar bone that was broken, it was a fracture and it's just about healed now, I can lift with that hand now.
"I've found a two-bed terraced house, with a living room and a kitchen. I didn't want too big a house, just somewhere small for a base to work from because I can't stay with my sister forever."
In a press conference afterwards, Mr Barnes said he thought the sentence was the right length of time and he hoped Gatiss would "do some thinking" while he was in prison.
He said: "I'm pleased he's been sentenced and I think the sentence of four years is not too short and not too long. I hope while he's in prison he'll do some thinking and when he comes out he'll do something useful. Maybe he might decide to help people, which I think would be a good idea for him."
"But I've moved on, I'm doing something else now, I'm working as an ambassador for the Katie Cutler Foundation, and we're hoping that the public will support us."
Although Gatiss had wept during previous court hearings, hedid not visibly react when he was sentenced to four years in jail at Newcastle Crown Court.
Nick Dry, prosecuting, said Gatiss pushed the top of the frail pensioner's head, forcing him to the floor and rummaged through his pockets after he failed to withdraw £10 from a cash point.
The broken collar bone stopped Mr Barnes washing or eating by himself.
Mr Barnes plans to use some of the hundreds of thousands of pounds raised by well-wishers to buy a new home as he does not want to return to the area of Gateshead where he was attacked.
At the presentation of the £300,000 raised, he said he "didn't expect that sort of response".
Mugging victim Alan Barnes faces the media alongside Katie Cutler, who set up the fundraising for him, after the man who attacked him was jailed for four years.
He says the last three months have been a "roller coaster" after the attack by Richard Gattiss.
Alan Barnes' story touched a nerve with Gateshead woman Katie Cutler, who decided to set up a fundraising page to help the vulnerable pensioner.
And the response was amazing - nearly 25,000 people from across the world donated money, eventually raising £330,135.They eventually met for the first time in February.
Last month Newcastle Crown Court Jamie Adams, defending Gatiss, said: "He wishes me to say at this stage that he is shocked, horrified and deeply ashamed of what he did.
"He has not stopped thinking about Mr Barnes since this awful deed."
He said he had been segregated in prison because of the way people felt about him.
Karl Gatiss, the father of Richard Gatiss who has today beenjailed for four years after attacking pensioner Alan Barnes, said he wants legal highs to be stopped from being sold in the North East.
However, he refused to comment on son's sentence in Newcastle Crown Court.
Judge Paul Sloan QC said the attack by Richard Gatiss on pensioner Alan Barnes was "despicable".
He said: "I have no doubt he was picked on by you because of his vulnerability. It was on any view a despicable offence."Read the full story here.
The court heard Gatiss used legal highs and had wanted money for drugs.
At an earlier hearing, prosecutor Keith Laidlaw said: "Legal highs played their part in this. There is also possession of cannabis on his record and there is a drugs background."
Gatiss pushed Mr Barnes to the pavement outside his home in January and told him to hand over his money but his victim said he had none and Gatiss then ran off.
Alan Barnes, 67, was knocked to the ground outside his Gateshead home in January and his collarbone was broken.
Richard Gatiss, 25, from Gateshead, pleaded guilty to assault with intent to rob at Newcastle Crown Court in February. He has been jailed for four years.
