HUNDREDS of families with young children kick-started their half term holiday with a day of family fun in Hexham.
Tots from birth to five-years-old, and their siblings, were given the chance to get active and creative as Wentworth Leisure Centre’s sports hall was transformed for a free sporty fun day on Monday.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
