A Guisborough man has appeared in court charged with murder following the death of a motorcyclist last weekend.

34-year-old Matthew Philip Buckworth of Charlton Garth in Guisborough appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday charged with the murder of 17-year-old Sonny Stephenson following an incident last Sunday evening on Bolckow Street in the town.

No plea was entered at the brief hearing.

Meanwhile the friends and family of Sonny Stephenson have gathered to release balloons in remembrance almost a week on from his death.

Sonny’s family was joined by a large crowd last night on the town’s Helmsley Drive to pay tribute to the 17-year-old.

 

Police are appealing for information after a 61-year-old woman was shot in the leg with a suspected air rifle.

The incident occurred on Tuesday at around 2:30pm in Albert Park in Middlesbrough when the victim was walking near to the Park Road South entrance when she was shot in her right leg.

The victim suffered bruising to her leg following the incident.

It is believed the driver of a grey Landrover may have witnessed the incident and officers would like the driver of this vehicle to come forward as they may be able to assist with enquiries.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect or anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact PC Chris Lindsey on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Cleveland Fire Brigade have issued a warning to people not to use rivers to cool off or swim in during warm weather, particularly when they have been drinking.

The call comes after concerns over recent call outs to rescue people from the River Tees over the last few weeks.

In one incident two fire appliances and the water rescue boat were called to reports of a man in the Tees at 11pm.

The man who was under the influence of alcohol, had been swimming. 

Fire Brigade advice during spells of warm weather is not to swim anywhere other than in purpose-built and supervised swimming pools.
