Two teenagers have been arrested after a man was stabbed in a suspected street fight in Grangetown.
The teenagers, aged 13 and 18, have both been charged with wounding with intent.
They will both remain in custody until their court appearances.
A 45-year-old man was taken to hospital with stab wounds after the disturbance on Bolckow Road in December.
The victim suffered stomach injuries but has since been released from hospital.
He’s believed to have been involved in a fight in the street which broke up when police arrived at the scene.
The Inspiring Women Awards are back and nominations are being sought for outstanding women in Redcar & Cleveland.
The awards recognise the hard work and effort of local women.
They were set up last year as a response by Redcar MP Anna Turley seeking ideas to recognise the late MP Mo Mowlam.
The overall winner of 2016 was Redcar-based lawyer Stacey Phoenix who was recognised for the impact she made on the local community.
As part of this year's awards she will be shadowed by a student. Similar opportunities will be available for girls in school and college in Redcar and Cleveland to shadow other inspiring women.
Alongside International Women's Day, the events will begin in March and will be rounded off by an awards ceremony at Kirkleatham Museum.
The ceremony will be hosted by Zetland FM's own Julie Donaldson.
