Redcar MP Anna Turley is trying to toughen up sentences for driving offences after a Redcar man was left paralysed from the neck down.

Alex Everington injuries have been described as "life-changing" after they left him unable to walk or feed himself.

He was a passenger in a speeding car being driven by Ian Maughan.

Mr Maughan lost control of the car and veered off the road at Warrenby Bridge and landed on its side in a field in January.

He was jailed for three years and four months and was also banned from driving.

Speaking in the House of Commons yesterday, Anna appealed for driving offence sentences to be increased.

 

Detectives investigating a robbery at the Premier Store on Kings Road, North Ormesby, in Middlesbrough, on Monday evening have made an arrest. 

The incident happened at around 5.15pm when Two men approached the store from the direction of Derwent Street and entered the store, both armed with sharp implements, before attempting to steal the till.

The men made off with hundreds of pounds in cash, leaving the staff in the store uninjured but shaken.

Yesterday officers arrested a 23-year-old local man on suspicion of robbery.

He remains in police custody at this time.

 

Cleveland Police are encouraging people to surrender their knives or sharp objects without fear of prosecution.

It’s part of a national campaign to try and tackle knife crime.

It follows on from last year's successful campaign where 106 knives or sharp objects were handed in.

The campaign begins next Tuesday and ends the following Monday.

Anyone with objects to surrender can put them in knife bins at the police station at Kirkleatham.

Once items are surrendered they will be safely disposed of.
