A police horse seen being punched by a football fan is "safe and well" this morning, its police force said.
Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio denied he was a racist or fascist after his controversial appointment received fresh criticism.
Yesterday's press conference at Sunderland's Academy of Light training base was illuminating in every way but one.
Police have launched an investigation after a man and woman were found dead at a house in Sunderland.
Northumbria Police said their deaths are being treated as suspicious.
Police and paramedics went to the home this afternoon after a relative "reported concern for the welfare of a couple living there".
Their bodies were found in a bedroom at the property.
Sunderland Area Commander Chief Superintendent Kay Blyth said, "We are in the early stages of our investigation into these deaths".
"The deaths are being treated as suspicious and we have additional officers in the area both to reassure the local community and help with the investigation".
Anyone with information is being urged to contact police on the 101 non-emergency number, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
After he was contacted by the Attorney General's office Dean Liddle posted the following tweets:
Just been served with court papers for posting picture of sick child killers Venables and Thompson. What a joke.
Love them to take me to court. I'll tell them exactly why I posted pictures of sick child killers.
But he quickly changed his tune when he received the letter saying that he would be prosecuted.
He then wrote and apologised, saying he had not fully understood the terms of the injunction and that he had seen the same images on hundreds of other sites.
The images were posted by Dean Liddle at 1.42am and removed less than an hour later, after questions were raised that they may have got the wrong people. The Twitter profile of Liddle had 915 followers.
The conversation that followed on the social network site said that it might be Venables and Liddle responds: "I was passed these by a friend if there is doubt about it being him I will remove."
He had earlier said in response to suggestion that child killers should be locked up for life: "I don't think that all child killers should be but after release he was arrested for child porn so agree here."
Neil Harkins and Dean Liddle, who are accused of breaching the injunction that stops identification of James Bulger's killers, have arrived at the High Court.
Lawyers for both men have indicated to the court that they accept that they are in contempt of the injunction.
The court has broken to give the men more time with their lawyers.
A 45-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of violent disorder by Northumbria Police, following an incident involving a police horse, has been released on police bail.
Two further men - aged 41 and 18 - and a youth aged 15 - who were also arrested on suspicion of violent disorder by British Transport Police have also been bailed, pending further inquiries.
Police are appealing to members of the public to get in touch with any information or footage that might help their investigation into the disorder by football fans after this Sunday's derby match.
Chief Superintendent Steve Neill spoke to ITV News about the need to bring the fans involved in the violence to justice.
Inspector Trevor Thackray, of West Yorkshire Police's mounted section, said police horse Bud was having a day off after being punched during troubled that followed yesterday's Tyne-Wear derby.
"We are pleased to say that Bud is totally fine and resting up after Sunday's eventful operation in Newcastle," he said.
"Our police horses are used to dealing with all types of disorder so, while the images on the news may have looked shocking, Bud wasn't hurt and his regular training ensures that he his acclimatised to this type of situation.
"The West Yorkshire Police mounted section is a well-regarded unit and our horses and officers are hugely experienced, so Bud will be back on the streets the next time duty calls."
Three British Transport Police officers were injured in disorder at Newcastle Central Station after the derby match between Newcastle United and Sunderland yesterday.
- A female officer was taken to hospital after a brick was thrown at her shoulder
- A male officers was left with a black eye after he was elbowed in the face
- A male sergeant received facial and leg injuries when he was struck by a thrown ballast
The force made four arrests in addition to 29 made by Northumbria Police, for offences including violent disorder and being drunk and disorderly.
Paolo Di Canio again refused to publicly explain his political views after suffering defeat on his debut as Sunderland manager, but insisted "as a person you don't change".
He could not prevent Sunderland's winless run extending to nine games as Chelsea won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and declined to comment directly on his views in the post-match media conference.
– Paolo Di Canio
As a person you don't change, but you become an adult, you become a manager. You can also handle your nature because you know now you're not a footballer, now you have responsibility for many others.
Obviously your nature never changes, but you can lead, you can guide because you know that you have to be careful sometimes when you do something. I don't think you are the same person than 20 years ago, 10 years ago.
We all change. We maintain the principles of when we were growing up, but we change a bit as a man, now as a manager.
