Police have arrested a man following a robbery in Middlesbrough.

Officers have arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with an alleged robbery on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough. 

The incident occurred near to Domino's Pizza just before midnight on Friday 29th June.

The man was arrested on suspicion of robbery and has been released under investigation.

 

Cleveland Police are warning residents in our area who have links to Tata Steel Ltd that they could be vulnerable to a scam.

Officers have received a report that an ex-employee was approached by a company based in the United States, offering to buys shares for far more than their market value.

The victim was contacted by email and telephone, with the fraudsters building up a relationship with them over a period of weeks.

Officers are advising people never to give out personal information over the phone and to beware of phishing emails asking for verification of personal details by clicking any links.

Anyone who believes they have been the victim of a scam or fraud is asked to report it to Action Fraud or call 0300 123 2040 and also contact the Victim Care and Advice service on 0303 040 1099.

 

Northern Powergrid, the company responsible for the region’s power network, is reminding youngsters, and their parents, to take the time for one life-saving lesson to stay safe during the holidays.

The recent fantastic weather means that thousands of children and teenagers across our area will be heading out to make the most of the sunshine and their summer holidays.

The company is urging parents to remind their children to stay away from the potential dangers of electricity and not to climb pylons or play near overhead power lines or substations.

If you see anything hanging from a power line or accidently kick a ball into a substation, the advice is to never try and retrieve it yourself as it’s extremely dangerous.

Northern Powergrid can be contacted by dialling 105 and they will send someone from their engineering team to help.
