TYNEDALE’S mysterious black cat has been spotted for the first time this year.
Former Haltwhistle cricket player Darren Milburn was walking his dog Millie in woodland between the town and Featherstone last Saturday morning when the creature appeared.
He said: “I heard a noise and when I turned around I saw what appeared to be a black cat. It was about knee height and looked big for a household cat.”

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
