Tributes have poured in for a teenager who died following a police chase in County Durham.

Kelvin Bainbridge, 19, was killed after crashing his Nissan Primera into a garden wall on Central Drive, Spennymoor, on Friday afternoon.

It is unclear whether or not the teen, who is believed to be the father of a baby, died at the scene.

Today, railings close to the Middlestone Moor scene were adorned with dozens of floral tributes.

One message read: ‘Never ever forget you my brother, always my brother, love you so much my homie.’

Another said: ‘Rest in paradise bro. You will be engraved in my heart I will miss you so so much and I will never forget you ever.’

The street is around the corner from two schools, Whitworth Park Academy and The Oaks secondary school, with the atmosphere in the local area described as ‘hostile and tense’.

Residents are said to be struggling to come to terms with Mr Bainbridge’s death.
