A man and a woman have both been arrested and charged in connection with a spate of burglaries on William Street in Redcar.

The burglaries occurred on Wednesday at around 4:30 in the morning.

A 36-year-old man has been charged with burglary, attempt burglary, false imprisonment and for assaulting two police officers. A 29-year-old woman has been charged with burglary.

They both appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who saw people acting suspiciously at the time of the burglaries to contact Detective Sergeant Emma Kensey on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Fire safety is the main fixture for the World Cup as Cleveland Fire Brigade kicks off the tournament with key safety messages on thousands of beer mats and posters.

The aim is to make sure the firefighters’ uniform is the one kit people don’t see during the tournament.

With football fans expected to watch the games at home, in pubs, clubs or BBQ parties , the Brigade has  set the ball rolling on the key ways to avoid the own goal of a damaging fire.

The beer mats and posters warning of the dangers of drinking and cooking and to take extra care with BBQ’’s, have spread across our area to pubs and clubs, takeaways, bookmakers and public buildings.

Last year (2017) 15% of all accidental house fires in Cleveland were as a result of cooking and 33% of all injuries sustained at an accidental house fire were also cooking related. One incident resulted in a fatality.
