A local MP has thrown his support behind a bid to bring millions of pounds of government cash to our area.

Simon Clark, the MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, has added his voice to that of Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, who yesterday called for £100m of tax payers money from central government to ensure the South Tees Development Corporation can get to work with its plans to create thousands of jobs for our area.

Speaking to Zetland FM, Simon said the government needs to invest on Teesside.

 

 

Police are appealing for information after an incident of arson in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened at around 3pm on Sunday on Harford Street in the town.

The occupant of the address returned home and entered the premises where he discovered a fire and called the Fire Brigade for assistance. 

He received treatment for minor smoke inhalation. 

Any witnesses, or anyone with information about the fire, are asked to contact DC Marie Appleby from Middlesbrough Operational Crime Team on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. 

 

Officers and staff from Cleveland Police took part in a walk and events to mark the Transgender Day of Remembrance yesterday.

The day was organised to respect members of the transgender and gender variant community who have been murdered across the world.

The walk began at the Blue Clock in Redcar and finished at Teesside University with the purpose of remembering those who have lost their lives and also raising awareness of the transphobic violence occurring in the world today. 

Cleveland Police, The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland Middlesbrough Council, Teesside University, Trans Aware, representatives from the transgender community, members of the public and film-makers from Stockton Riverside College all participated in the walk.
