Police are appealing for witnesses who may have been in Tesco on Corporation Road in Middlesbrough at the time of an alleged attempted theft to come forward.

The attempted theft is thought to have occurred in the store on Monday evening at around 7.30pm.

A 59-year-old woman sadly died after taking ill in the store and detectives are looking into whether her death could be linked to the earlier incident.

A post mortem took place on Tuesday, however no further details regarding the cause of death are being released whilst enquiries continue.

The two men arrested on Monday on suspicion of manslaughter and attempted theft have now been released without charge.  

Two further arrests were made. Two men, aged 35 and 37-years-old, who were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and attempted theft have both been bailed pending further enquiries.

Anyone who was in Tesco at the time of the incident is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Local MP Simon Clarke has written to Government Ministers demanding action on the introduction of a more environmentally friendly petrol which also supports British industry and farming.

Simon joined other Parliamentarians from both main parties to call on ministers including Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to show leadership on tackling transport emissions by introducing E10 fuel by the end of the year.

E10 is regular unleaded petrol blended with 10% bioethanol, which is a low carbon renewable fuel which can lower carbon emissions and other pollutants.

So far the Government has shied away from pleas to mandate the introduction of E10 despite the petrol companies, which would need to implement it, calling for them to do so.

 

The Redcar Coastguard was called into action yesterday following reports of a person in the water at Redcar.

The crew were tasked at ten past five on Tuesday by Humber coastguard after reports of a person in the water off Redcar Seafront.

Once on scene and after contacting the first informant the target was found to be a Marker Buoy for local fishermen.

The incident was classed as a False Alarm with Good Intent.

Whilst the team were returning to the station a member of the public made them aware of a group of youths on the Redcar Beacon Slipway during high tide wave dodging.

The youths were coaxed back to the top of the Slipway and given safety advice by Coastguard team members on the dangers of wave dodging.

The public are being reminded that if you see anybody in trouble at sea or on the cliffs call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
