Another man has been charged with the murder of Redcar father John Newton.

The 45-year-old died after being bundled into a van and assaulted on 19 March.

Last week, three men were found guilty of kidnap and murder. Another was cleared of both charges and a fifth faces a retrial on a murder charge but was found guilty of kidnap.

Cleveland Police said a 48-year-old man, from the Hartlepool area, had been charged with murder.

He was due to appear at Teesside Magistrates Court later.
