The body of a man who was found on Saltburn cliffs still hasn't been identified.

However Middlesbrough Coroner's Office has started preparing for an inquest.

Police were called on Wednesday afternoon after reports of a man seen on Huntcliff.

Emergency services found a body at the top of the cliff.

The body was recovered and taken to James Cook Hospital.

 

An inquest has ruled that the death of a miner at Boulby Potash was due to “misadventure”.

John Anderson died after a gas blowout at the mine last June.

Health and safety officials claim Mr Anderson was not following safety guidelines.

However, a colleague says he was following procedures in the minutes before the blowout.

Two days before his death Mr Anderson is said to have claimed that someone would have to be killed before the area was shut down.

Last night Cleveland Potash issued a statement following the ruling.

They said "Everyone involved with the mine was deeply shocked by this tragic incident. Richie was a well-respected and long-standing colleague and our thoughts remain with his family and friends.

"Safety is always our first priority and we have worked closely with the Health and Safety Executive’s Mines Inspectorate in the investigation into the incident which, as was explained to the inquest, concluded that it was ‘not foreseeable.’"

 

Police are holding a property marking event in Guisborough tomorrow.

Residents can get a free etching to help keep anything from bicycles to mobile phones out of the hands of criminals.

The etchings not only reunite owners with their property, but also help provide evidence to convict the thief.

The event takes place tomorrow from half nine til twelve at Margrove Park Village Hall.
