Police have launched a murder investigation after a woman was found dead at her home in Middlesbrough.
Officers were called to a house on The Avenue in Linthorpe at twenty past eight on Monday evening.
34-year-old Jessica Patel, originally from the Leeds area, was found with serious injuries at the address and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A post mortem examination has taken place, however, for investigative purposes the cause of death is not being released at this time.
Detectives are appealing to anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area around The Avenue, particularly between the junctions with The Crescent and Lancaster Road, yesterday evening to contact them.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The volunteer crews of the Redcar lifeboats were called into operation last night.
Both Redcar lifeboats were launched at around quarter to ten last night, after a report of red flare in the Saltburn area.
However a short time later it was confirmed that the flare was fired from inland.
The lifeboats then returned to the lifeboat station at Redcar.
It was the annual big Charity night for Middlesborough Freemasons last night.
Held at the Masonic Hall on Roman Road, the 'Charity Presentation Evening' saw cheques presented to a large number of local charities in the community.
Speaking to Zetland FM, event organiser Jim Skelton told us how much money had been raised.
