Tyne and Wear organisations are coming together to say no to violence against women for White Ribbon Day.
The international day is led by men who are calling for an end to violence against women.
Chief Fire Officer Chris Lowther of Tyne and Wear Fire Service, along with other organisations across the region, will make their pledge in support of White Ribbon Day.
Meanwhile, the first phase of a £70m project to rebuild Gosforth Metro Depot has been completed.
The new depot will be ready for use in autumn next year when the first new train will arrive in the region.
And finally, a landlord in Elswick has been barred from renting out a house by the council after it was found in a shocking state.
A family had to move from the property into emergency accommodation after there was damp, mould and no hot water in the property.
The tenants turned to the council after the landlord failed to respond and the landlord has been served with a prohibition order.
