An inquest has been opened into the death of local teenager Charlie Stubley.
The 18-year-old was killed on Sunday night after the motorcycle he was riding was in a collision with a car at the junction of Birchington Avenue and St Andrews Road East in Grangetown .
Yesterday his inquest was opened at Teesside Coroner’s Court, and the relevant paperwork was released in order to allow Charlie's family to hold his funeral.
At the opening of Charlie’s inquest the court heard that Charlie's mother Tracey had formally identified his body.
Joanne Wharton, the Assistant Teesside Coroner, adjourned the inquest for further investigations into Charlie's death to continue.
An interim death certificate and burial order was released to his family.
MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has welcomed plans to build a £100 million data centre at Wilton.
It is hoped that the project will create around 400 jobs for our area.
The project is being driven by ST2 – a sustainable technology start up – and will be powered by Sembcorp. ST2 have completed a land exchange for a 31-acre plot and a planning application has been submitted.
Anna said the proposed data centre is an exciting proposal and that she is really pleased to see that ST2 have chosen Teesside as the place to make their investment.
She said it is another vote of confidence in our area and our local workforce and shows that we have the skills and infrastructure to attract big investments like this.
Anna says that she is looking forward to seeing the project progress and hopes it will encourage other technology start-ups to choose Teesside and create more quality technology jobs.
