A teenager has been given an accidental £10,000 Covid fine on the day of his friend's funeral for organising a balloon release.

Tyler James, 19, was initially fined £400 after 200 people gathered to attend a memorial event for his pal Jamie McKitten, from Chester-le-Street, who died in March after being hit by a train.

The community rallied together to raise the money and pay off the fine, but on the day of his friend's funeral, Tyler received a £10,000 fine through the post.
