Dozens of bikers have taken part in an emotional funeral procession for young motorcyclist who died in a crash in our area.

16-year-old Rhys Wardle was riding in woodland near Lazenby when he collided with a tree on Sunday, March 21st.

The riders turned out yesterday to follow Rhys on his final journey through the streets of Ormesby where he lived.

Many were wearing neon pink and yellow T-shirts, and revved their engines and sounded their horns in tribute during the special convoy to Teesside Crematorium.

 

A lorry driver has had to be freed from his cab by firefighters after a crash on a major road on Teesside.

The vehicle overturned just before 9am yesterday on the A19 southbound slip road from the A174 Parkway.
