SUNDERLAND Council staff have been left shocked and saddened by the sudden death of a popular colleague.

Andy Neal was a senior member of the city authority’s youth development team.

He played a pivotal role in helping thousands of Wearside youngsters, through innovative schemes such as the travelling youth villages, which have helped to cut antisocial behaviour in city troublespots.

Mr Neal was also integral in recognising the talents of Sunderland’s youth, being heavily involved in the council’s annual Young Achiever’s Awards.
