Manchester Arena attack
A memorial service is being live-streamed from Manchester Cathedral to mark the third anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing - which killed 22 people, including four from Tyneside.
Meanwhile, two young brothers are finishing a running challenge later in memory of South Shields couple Liam Curry and Chloe Rutherford, who were among the victims.
Charlie and Logan have been doing 22 laps of their garden every day, and they've raised more than £1,700 for the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust and hope to finish their 49-mile target today.
Chloe and Liam mean a lot to our family and the trust is also amazing in what it does and how it helps and inspires other young people, Charlie had been planning a charity run at school and unfortunately that got knocked on the head with lockdown and the closures but he still wanted to do something for the trust."
