Good evening. late news at 10pm.

:00:00.:00:13.

Four men have been arrested after a man was found dead

:00:14.:00:15.

Northumbria Police were called to Bermuda Guesthouse,

:00:16.:00:19.

on North Parade, in Whitley Bay, yesterday at around 5pm.

:00:20.:00:23.

A man in his 30s, found with injuries, was pronounced dead

:00:24.:00:26.

A postmortem examination is being carried out on the victim.

:00:27.:00:32.

Labour says it'll spend almost ?1.5 billion on the region's railways.

:00:33.:00:41.

The pledge has come from Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell,

:00:42.:00:44.

who was speaking in Newcastle this afternoon.

:00:45.:00:46.

Enter the man who would run the Treasury.

:00:47.:00:52.

John McDonnell, here to tell the party faithful that a

:00:53.:00:55.

Labour Government would spend big on transport in the North.

:00:56.:00:59.

Whilst London receives half of all transport investment,

:01:00.:01:04.

The Shadow Chancellor promised new trains

:01:05.:01:10.

He wants to reopen two rail lines and spend hundreds of

:01:11.:01:20.

John McDonnell's message was bound to be well-received

:01:21.:01:23.

But outside there will be those asking just how will

:01:24.:01:26.

What we are arguing with the Government for is to follow the

:01:27.:01:37.

German model, and actually a model that's right the way across Europe,

:01:38.:01:39.

which is to have a national investment bank, where in that

:01:40.:01:42.

national investment bank you put in ?100 billion -

:01:43.:01:44.

you borrow that of course - that will lever in

:01:45.:01:47.

fairly conservative, ?215 billion from the private sector.

:01:48.:01:50.

The Labour Party, the current state it's in,

:01:51.:01:52.

stands no chance of enacting any of this.

:01:53.:01:54.

I would argue very clearly that there is a real appetite, and

:01:55.:01:56.

you see this is sold out, there is a real appetite for change,

:01:57.:02:00.

and this Government is not producing it.

:02:01.:02:03.

Andrew Hartley, BBC Look North, Newcastle.

:02:04.:02:07.

Hundreds of people have made the annual pilgrimage

:02:08.:02:09.

to Durham Cathedral today, to celebrate St Cuthbert's day.

:02:10.:02:12.

St Cuthbert - one of the most important saints

:02:13.:02:15.

of the medieval period - is buried in Durham and is closely

:02:16.:02:18.

Today his banner was carried into the city from Chester le Street.

:02:19.:02:26.

St Cuthbert is central to any true understanding

:02:27.:02:29.

The history of Holy Island, the northern saints, St Cuthbert,

:02:30.:02:33.

St Bede, is wrapped up in the identity of the north-east,

:02:34.:02:39.

and of course it is astonishing that he is buried here in Durham

:02:40.:02:42.

Cathedral - it is unique in the country.

:02:43.:02:46.

Football, and great news for both our non-league teams

:02:47.:02:49.

After extra-time, York City drew the second leg of their FA Trophy

:02:50.:02:55.

semifinal at Lincoln, to give them a 3-2 aggregate victory.

:02:56.:02:59.

And, in the FA Vase, South Shields are also on their way.

:03:00.:03:03.

Jeff Brown watched their semifinal at Mariners Park.

:03:04.:03:13.

And yet in team is to Wembley. This time it is Sarah Shields after a

:03:14.:03:21.

record-breaking 24th win in a row. Two up from the first leg of their

:03:22.:03:27.

semifinal, the captain's to refix shot just before half-time put the

:03:28.:03:31.

Mariners firmly in control. Midway through the second half they made it

:03:32.:03:41.

2-0 and eventually 4-0 on the day, 6-1 on aggregate.

:03:42.:03:43.

Elsewhere, Sunderland could only manage a draw at home to Burnley -

:03:44.:03:46.

a result that leaves them seven points from safety, at the bottom

:03:47.:03:48.

In the Championship, Newcastle's match at Birmingham

:03:49.:03:52.

It was a bad day for our two League Two sides.

:03:53.:04:01.

Hartlepool went down 2-0 at home to Wycombe,

:04:02.:04:03.

and Carlisle lost by the same scoreline at Mansfield.

:04:04.:04:06.

In the National League, Gateshead's promotion push continued

:04:07.:04:09.

And in Scottish League Two, Berwick lost 2-0 at home to Arbroath.

:04:10.:04:17.

Now let's see what's happening with the weather -

:04:18.:04:19.

Hi, everyone - hope you had a lovely Saturday.

:04:20.:04:24.

Bit of an east-west divide in our weather actually.

:04:25.:04:26.

It was cloudier with outbreaks of rain across Cumbria, a

:04:27.:04:30.

That rain does transfer its way across towards

:04:31.:04:36.

eastern parts overnight with strengthening winds,

:04:37.:04:37.

lows of around eight or nine Celsius so not that cold, at least.

:04:38.:04:40.

A cloudy, breezy start to the day tomorrow.

:04:41.:04:45.

We will see further outbreaks of rain, especially further west.

:04:46.:04:47.

It tends to fizzle out to the east with some brightness.

:04:48.:04:51.

Still blustery, though, with strong winds.

:04:52.:04:52.

Outbreaks of rain on Monday, turning colder on Tuesday.

:04:53.:04:55.

That's if from me, our next bulletin is at the same time tomorrow.

:04:56.:05:00.
