Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen has today hailed the Chancellor's announcement that £123 million will be given to Tees Valley to kick-start the work of the South Tees Development Corporation (STDC), as well as a number of other positive funding announcements for the region.

The £123 million will be used towards remediating the site and will pave the way for investment from some of the 60 private companies which have already expressed serious interest to the recently established South Tees Development Corporation.

In addition, a £59 million transport fund has been devolved to the Tees Valley to improve public transport across our region.

The six Metropolitan Mayors in England will receive half of a national pot to locally deliver the schemes.

The Tees Valley's allocation is based on an equal division per head of population.

 

Police are appealing for information after a grey Mazda 6 vehicle and a pedal cycle collided on the Trunk Road in Grangetown at the junction with McDonalds.

The incident occurred on Tuesday at 6:30 in the morning.

As a result of the collision, the 37-year-old male rider of the pedal cycle was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he was treated for a broken arm.

Any witnesses or anyone with information regarding the collision are asked to contact PC Benjamin Sutcliffe from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number on 101.

 

Items which were confiscated in a drugs raid are being put to good in a local park.

Dozens of large plant pots, bags of compost and fertiliser, lighting and electrical growing items were handed over today - to students from Askham Bryan College who are running a project in Middlesbrough’s Stewart Park.

The £15,000 drugs haul was discovered in July in a container on the outskirts of Middlesbrough as part of an investigation into cannabis farms where three people were charged with production of the drug.

The equipment, which was all brand new and in boxes, will now be put to good use in the popular park.
