Police are appealing for the driver of a vehicle to come forward following a collision with a blue moped last week.

The incident occurred at 5:30pm last Wednesday at the Belle Vue roundabout at the junction of Belle Vue Grove and Marton Road in Middlesbrough.

As a result of the collision the 54-year-old female rider of the moped was taken to James Cook University where she was treated for minor cuts and bruises.

Officers are appealing for the driver of the vehicle, which may have been a taxi, to come forward as they may be able to assist with enquiries.

Any witnesses or anyone with information regarding the driver of the vehicle are asked to contact PC Gail Sutherland from the Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number on 101.

 

P&O Ferries has announced that it plans to lift capacity on its Zeebrugge-Teesport route by almost 25 per cent within the next month in order to create a gateway to Scotland via our areas port facilities.

The integrated ferry and logistics company currently carries more than 100,000 freight units a year to Teesport from its continental hub at Zeebrugge.

The 12 sailings a week service is currently provided by the 25,000 ton ship 'Bore Song' and the 10,000 ton 'Mistral'.

Customers will benefit from P&O Ferries' plans to increase the capacity of its ships combined with the introduction by PD Ports of a new rail service to Mossend in Scotland.

The timetable of both services will be fully integrated so that freight can be moved from one to the other with minimal delay.

 

Police are issuing a warning after members of the public of a scam after two similar reports were received by police on the same day. 

Two people reported that they received calls from an automated voice purportedly from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, alleging that legal action was being taken against them. 

The victims were instructed to ring a number beginning with the digits 02 immediately and were told to ‘select option 2’ before being told that their homes were under surveillance and that if they didn’t respond they could be arrested. 

Both phone calls were received on Friday 11th May.

Police would advise that those people who receive a call like this should report via 101 and should not give away any financial details.
