Cleveland Fire Brigade are encouraging all students to have a think about their fire safety as part of their Fire Kills Campaign.
With new students settling in to their new accomodation, fire officers are encouraging them to take a few moments to think about what they can do to reduce any fire risks.
Tips from the brigade include not leaving cooking unattended and take extra care when frying with oil, keeping candles away from flammable surfaces, not overloading plug sockets, and being familiar with escape routes.
Fire brigade advice is that every university or college has a person responsible for fire safety, and you should speak to them if you spot a fire risk or have any concerns about safety.
Teesside's most iconic landmark will open up for night time tours as part of this year’s Discover Middlesbrough Festival.
The tours, which take place this Friday between 6 and 10pm, will take visitors to the top of the Bridge’s 160ft high walkway via the recently installed glass lift to provide a unique experience of Teesside at night.
