  7. More than 19,000 poppies knitted for Remembrance Day

    An army veteran has created a display with more than 19,000 poppies to mark Remembrance Day.

    Knitters from across the world have donated their stitched poppies to help Andy Denholm achieve his goal and remember those who served in World War One.

    The installation will cover the entire front section of the Church Hall in West Cornforth, County Durham.

    The poppies

    Andy said: “To reach 19,240 poppies is just amazing because it represents the number of British soldiers killed on 1 July 1916 during the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

    "We set ourselves a project to instil some community spirit and it has spread across County Durham and even as far afield as ex-pats in Australia and Canada, people just want to be part of it."

  8. Man robbed by armed men

    A 53-year-old man was robbed by two men armed with knives in Newcastle.

    The suspects threatened the man and stole his cash, necklace and watch outside the Halifax in Gosforth High Street on 4 August.

    The victim was shaken by the incident but unharmed.

    The offenders are believed to be in their early 20s or late teens.

    One of them was 5ft 10in and wore a black hoodie with goggles attached to the hood, gloves and spoke with a local accent.

    The second male was white European and wore a Burberry scarf over his face.
