Police have released new footage of a man they wish to speak with who was captured nearby on CCTV around this time.

They are asking the man to get in touch with them or anyone who may know who he is to get in touch as a matter of urgency.

The videos can be viewed on the Cleveland Police website.

Anyone with any information can contact Cleveland Police on 101 quoting crime reference SE17236137 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Today is National Safer Internet Day, and officers from Cleveland Police will be educating children and their parents on safe use of online technology.

Safer Internet Day is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre every February to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people.

The campaign is supported centrally by the National Crime Agency, Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command and locally by the UK’s police forces.

Officers from the Paedophile Online Investigation Team will be visiting children in years 5 and 6 in primary schools in the area to give them first-hand information on how they can stay safe whilst using the internet and their phones. 

This will be followed up with a session aimed at parents to ensure they too are aware of what to look out for when their children are online.
