YOUTH offending work on Teesside has been given a royal seal of approval.

The South Tees Youth Offending team was invited to attend a Prince's Trust conference.

The royal request was to give Prince Charles, who set up the charity, a chance to find out more about the work being done in the area and how it supports The Prince's Trust.
