It's the fortieth anniversary of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway today. They'll be celebrating with a special stream train trip from Whitby to Pickering.
The line was closed to passengers in 1965 and freight in 1966 as a result of the Beeching Report. But the North Yorkshire Moors Railway reopened the line in 1973 and is now run as a successful tourist attraction.
The family of a man from North Yorkshire held in the Central African Republic on suspicion of murder says the Foreign Office is not doing enough. David Simpson from Pickering was arrested after he reported to police that he had found 18 massacred bodies in the bush.
It has been confirmed a man from North Yorkshire who was locked up in Africa after discovering bodies is being held on suspicion of murder.
24 year old David Simpson was arrested almost six weeks ago in the Central African Republic and has been held in jail since then. It followed him reporting to police the bodies of 18 men in the remote bush.
On his family's Facebook page they have said it has been confirmed Mr Simpson is being held on suspicion of murder, but they are seeing the start of a third investigation into what happened as a positive mood.
People living in Pickering could be about to get help to protect their homes from flooding.
£100,000 is being spent to provide flood barriers for up to 29 homes in the town. Surveys on flood-hit properties have already started and steps to install non return valves for drainage pipes and repointing work has started to improve defences.
