Armed police were called after reports of a man with a gun on a busy road in our area yesterday.

Firearms officers stopped a vehicle on Bonnygrove Way in Coulby Newham after reports that a man was in possession of a firearm.

Passers-by reported the road was closed at the junction with Foxgloves at around 3.30 yesterday afternoon.

A man was arrested and taken into police custody.

 

Teesside Mayor Ben Houchen has met Treasury minister Robert Jenrick to call for Government backing for a multi-billion pound mine project essential to the Tees Valley economy.

Sirius Minerals’ Woodsmith Mine will see polyhalite mined in North Yorkshire and marketed internationally.

A naturally occurring and multi-nutrient fertiliser, polyhalite is coveted by farmers around the world to help increase yields.

The firm will complete its second stage funding of up to $3billion later this year and a Treasury Guarantee will form an important part of the overall deal.  

The call from the mayor comes just weeks after Sirius completed its purchase of a 284-acre site at Bran Sands.

 

There could be more snow on it's way to our area this weekend, according to reports from the Met Office.

A Yellow weather warning of snow and ice has been issued by the Met Office for Saturday afternoon. 

A band of rain and hill snow will descend to lower levels along the coast on Friday and overnight into Saturday.

And it could lead to more travel disruption with icy patches forming on untreated roads.

The warning lasts until Saturday morning when the band of rain will move towards the South-west, with ice expected to form on damp ground as the rain and snow clears.

Some roads and railways are likely to be affected, with longer journey times by road, bus and train expected.
