James Allen manhunt: Double murder suspect 'knew first victim'

A man being sought over two murders in the North East of England knew one of the victims, police have said.

More than 100 officers from Cleveland and North Yorkshire forces are involved in the search for James Allen, 35, originally from Blackpool.

It follows the discovery of the bodies of Colin Dunford, 81, in Middlesbrough and Julie Davison, 50, in Whitby.

Cleveland Police said Mr Allen lived next door to Mr Dunford about 12 months ago.

Danny Savage reports.
