The teenager has been remanded into custody until his next hearing at Teesside Crown Court on July 29.

A fundraising page has raised over £5,000 to help support the family after the tragic incident.

On the page, it states: "We understand that Sarah was a mother, she leaves behind a partner and her young children, we can't begin to imagine what the family are going through to not only lose a mother, partner and daughter but also Sarah's father Michael.

"We don't know the family personally but would like to let them know that they are in our thoughts and hoped that the fantastic people of Guisborough, Marske and surrounding areas will give generously so that we can help even a small amount at this awful time."
