Three dogs have been seized and a 23-year-old man has been interviewed by police and while inquiries continue into a dog attack in Redcar.
The attack took place on Sunday at the junction with Bradfield Way and Greystoke Walk just after 5pm, when a dog which was being walked on a lead was attacked by three other dogs.
The family pet taken to the vets but his injuries were so severe that he had to be put to sleep.
Cleveland Police have thanked the public for their support during the investigation.
An investigation is continuing into a fire that gutted a former school in our area.
The fire started at the former Eston Park School on Burns Road, Eston, near Middlesbrough at around 7.15pm on Wednesday and required 40 firefighters to tackle it.
The building, which closed down in 2014 when the school merged with Gillbrook Academy, was still smouldering yesterday as firefighters spent several hours dampening down the site.
The site is considered to be too dangerous for firefighters to enter in order to carry out investigations, and these will take place in the coming days.
New fencing will now be erected and 24-hour security has been put in place, including patrols of the local area.
Cleveland Police are inviting local businesses to attend a cyber-breakfast in Redcar later this month.
The purpose of the breakfasts is to show businesses how they can be vulnerable to a cyber-attack and this will be shown by demonstrating a live hack.
Advice will then be given on how businesses can defend themselves from being hacked as the teams will provide free vulnerability assessment service, which will give businesses an overview of ICT weaknesses so they can fix them before cyber criminals attack.
The business breakfasts are free for businesses to attend and tickets will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
In our area, the event is on Tuesday 20th February 2018 and will be held at Redcar & Cleveland College on Corporation Road in Redcar, beginning at 8.30am.
