    Poyet raised concerns about his team's playing style but also urged patience from supporters. "I think the fans want Niall Quinn and Kevin Phillips back but they are not playing anymore," the 47-year-old said.

    11:24: 'Nothing to lose'

    The former Newcastle United captain Bobby Moncur - who was treated for oesophageal cancer last year - says people have nothing to lose by going to see their doctor.

    Police in the North East have revealed the violent pasts of more than 80 people to their partners, in response to requests made under what's become known as Clare's Law.

    It's where police disclose information to someone about their other half's history to try and protect them from possible domestic abuse.

    The scheme was rolled out less than a year ago and and in that time 230 requests for information have been made to Northumbria Police with the force revealing details in about one sixth of cases. The Durham force had 96 applications but it gave out info on half of them.
