A man has been charged with the murder of another man in Hartlepool.

Stanley Burgon, 56, was found badly hurt at his home in the town's Rydal Street on 18 November 2016.

A 43-year-old is due in court on 29 March charged with Mr Burgon's murder, Cleveland Police said.

A force spokesman said a 32-year-old woman who had been previously arrested on suspicion of assault, had been released with no further action.

Mr Burgon suffered serious head injuries and died in hospital shortly after he was found.
