Police are appealing for witnesses to a serious collision that occurred in the early hours of yesterday morning in Middlesbrough.

The collision happened at around ten past midnight yesterday morning on Cargo Fleet Lane, involving a black Fiat Punto and a 17-year-old male cyclist riding a BMX bike.

The cyclist suffered serious injuries and is currently in a critical condition at James Cook University Hospital.

A woman aged in her forties was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving under the influence of alcohol.

She remains in police custody.

Any witnesses to the incident or anyone who assisted at the scene is asked to contact Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Arriva North East have been forced to consider withdrawing a key bus service in our area following a number of acts of vandalism.

The bus operator says a number of incidents, mainly broken windows, have occurred recently on the 64A service in the Bankfields area of Eston.

Now the company has announced that in the interests of the safety of both passengers and drivers, any further instances of vandalism in the area will result in the service being removed and diverted away from the area.

Arriva say they won't restore the service until they feel that it can operate safely.

 

Rail passengers in our area are warned of disruption to train services today as another day of industrial action takes place.

Northern Rail, which operates services between Middlesbrough and Saltburn and Whitby says that the majority of available trains will operate between 7am and 7pm, with services on some routes finishing earlier.

However, during these hours the overall number of trains running will be significantly reduced.

Northern say that they expect trains and any replacement buses will be extremely busy.

They are therefore advising passengers to allow extra time for journeys, plan carefully and consider whether travel is necessary.
