MUSIC star Tinchy Stryder helped to create a record-breaking weekend at one of North Yorkshire’s biggest attractions.

The chart-topping grime star performed and officially opened "Riverside One" - the new £4m outdoor events arena at Flamingo Land, near Pickering last Friday.

Some15,000 people enjoyed the show - at the time a record breaking crowd for the park but that record was smashed just two days later, when more than 17,000 people visited on Sunday, according to owner Gordon Gibb.
