- Tyne Tees
Events will be held this weekend to mark the 100th anniversary of the funeral of Emily Wilding Davison.
The suffragette died in 1913, a few days after stepping onto the racecourse at Epsom. She was hit by the king's horse.
Emily's family was from Northumberland. Between 13th and 15th June, a series of centenary events will be held in and around Morpeth to remember a woman who fought for the vote.
On Saturday, a commemorative procession will take place between Morpeth railway station and St Mary's Church; the route of her funeral cortege.
Emily's relatives are travelling to Northumberland from around the world to take part.
