The operator of an attraction in Redcar says he’s been left “dismayed” by a break-in which happened this week.

Businessman Ben Corbett and his brother-in-law Mark Speight have invested a lot of money breathing new life into the old boathouse in Locke Park, which opened six weeks ago.

But just before midnight on Monday, CCTV cameras caught intruders coming through the roof and ransacking the place.

Ben told Zetland FM what happened.

 

Police are continuing their appeal for witnesses as a man remains in a critical condition with serious head injuries following an alleged assault in Middlesbrough.

Officers believe that there are people who were in the area outside Soho Bar on Albert Road at the time of the alleged incident around 3.45am on Bank Holiday Monday who have not yet come forward and spoken to police.

Detectives carrying out the investigation believe that there may have been up to 30 people in the vicinity of the area where the alleged incident took place, and they would again urge people to come forward.

Police also believe that there were motorists passing at the time who may have information or possibly dashcam footage which could assist the enquiry.

 

A cannabis farm thought to be worth more than one hundred thousand pounds has been dismantled by police in North Ormesby.

Early yesterday morning officers forced entry into a house in Maria Street and found around 200 mature cannabis plants.

A man aged in his late 20s was arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis.

Police investigations are ongoing.
