Police are continuing to investigate the murder of a man in on Meadowcroft Road in Normanby.

Yesterday afternoon detectives investigating the murder arrested a fifth man.

The 21 year old was arrested on suspicion of murder and he has been detained at Middlesbrough Police Office where he faces questioning.

Four other men, aged 20, 21, 22 and 31, have also been arrested on suspicion of the murder of the man following an incident at around 10.30pm on Monday.

They remain in police custody awaiting questioning.

Inquiries into the incident are on-going and police are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time to contact them via the non-emergency 101 number.

 

MP for Redcar Anna Turley has backed calls to stop the sale of energy drinks to under 16s following warnings about the health dangers they pose.

Research led by North East universities found that consumption of energy drinks in the UK has increased by 185% between 2006 and 2015, and that they are very easily available to children.

Energy drinks often contain a high level of sugar and caffeine, with some brands containing the equivalent of 5 espressos of caffeine in a single can.

Anna secured a Westminster Hall debate on the issue yesterday to encourage ministers to act on the issue as part of its obesity strategy.

 

Police have named the motorcyclist who died after his bike was in collision with a barrier on the A171 at Birk Brow on Sunday afternoon.

70 year old Rod Byers from Salcombe Avenue in Jarrow in Tyne and Wear died of his injuries in the James Cook University Hospital following the incident.

The Teesside Coroner’s Office is appealing for any relatives of Mr Byers to get in touch with them.
