Officers from Cleveland Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision during which a 7-year-old girl suffered a broken leg. 

The collision happened at around 5.30pm on Saturday on Orwell Street in Middlesbrough involving a Ford Fiesta and the child pedestrian. 

The girl required surgery for her injuries at James Cook University Hospital. 

Any witnesses are asked to contact PC Paul Dale from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101, quoting event number 192000. 

 

Cleveland Police Crime Prevention Team has launched a campaign to encourage members of the public to keep their homes illuminated. 

The annual ‘Lights Against Crime’ campaign raises awareness of making homes look occupied even when they’re not, in order to deter burglars from targeting them.

Crime prevention measures include using lights on timer switches and dusk ‘til dawn lighting outside homes for consistent light.

Burglaries across Cleveland tend to increase during the winter months as the dark nights draw in.

Recent figures show that to date, there have been 158 dwelling burglaries so far during October.

Almost half of burglaries across Cleveland are on properties which are insecure, meaning it is vital to lock windows and doors to help prevent a burglary.
