THE family of a man who died after an assault outside a Teesside pub have paid tributes to their 'beloved' son, brother, dad and grandad. 

Anthony Robinson, also known as Anto, died after being assaulted outside The Roundel Pub in Thornaby, near Stockton on Tuesday, September 17.

Anto, who was a father to five children, was taken to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough where he later died from his injuries.

On Wednesday, paying tribute to 'beloved' Anto his sister Jane said: "As a family, we loved a good karaoke and sing song.

The Northern Echo:

"Anto loved to sing Summer of 69 and Hold Back the River with our cousin, Shelley.

"If I sang Something Inside So Strong by Labi Siffre he would jump up at the part that said ‘brothers and sisters’.

"He had some great friends in the Golden Eagle, which he never went far from unless we were all together."

“Anto wasn’t an angel when he was younger. He was always up to some mischief with his cousin or mates. He liked to go fishing with his sons at the weekend and sometimes we would go camping.

"It was a great laugh and he would always have a big, daft smile on his face. Anto is now reunited with his dad.”

Following the alleged incident, a man, 39, was charged with manslaughter and appeared before Teesside Magistrates' Court on Thursday, September 19.
