Police are appealing for information after a serious assault in Middlesbrough.
The incident occurred at 3:45am yesterday morning outside of Soho bar on Albert Road in Middlesbrough.
As a result of the incident, a 17-year-old male is being treated for serious head injuries in James Cook University Hospital and is in critical condition.
Three males aged 21 and one male aged 22 have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with the incident and they all currently remain in custody.
Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat was called into action yesterday.
The lifeboat was called just after 7am to go to the assistance of a 6-metre fishing boat which had broken down about one and a half miles north east of Saltburn.
A tow was rigged and the disabled craft was brought back to the beach near to the Ship Inn at Saltburn, where a coastguard rescue team was waiting.
The Staithes and Runswick lifeboat was also in action at the weekend.
The lifeboat was launched at 12:15pm on Sunday after a fishing vessel picked up a kayaker who had fallen out of his Kayak approximately 2 miles off Skinningrove.
The lifeboat collected the casualty and returned to the lifeboat station where the man was treated for severe hypothermia after being in the water for more than 30 minutes.
Ambulance crews then took the casualty to hospital.
A number of free health checks are available in our area today.
Staff from the South Tees Nurse Bank will be delivering a programme of free health checks, starting today at 10am – 4pm at Ormesby Library, followed by checks at Boots store at Cleveland Retail Park from 10am on Friday.
People will have the opportunity to have a healthy heart check or lung health check through the programme.
The checks will assess the risk of residents developing cardiovascular disease, and consist of a blood pressure and cholesterol check, pulse monitoring, a body mass index calculation and a lifestyle questionnaire.
The aim of the programme is to increase the uptake of NHS Health Checks by offering a more accessible service for local residents.
