Cleveland Police have released images of a number of football fans they want to speak to fans after disorder at the Riverside Stadium in April.
Officers want to trace the 26 Millwall fans after alleged offences including missiles being thrown and some isolated incidents of assault at the match on Saturday, April 28.
Police previously identified six Middlesbrough fans in relation to the same disorder.
Anyone who may be able to assist in identifying the men in the images is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
A merger of Redcar and Cleveland College and Stockton Riverside College became official yesterday in a move that is already bringing opportunities to the area.
The two colleges will now work together as one organisation, while maintaining a strong presence in their respective communities and each retaining their own identities and campuses.
Already creating a positive impact with the creation of new job opportunities at a senior and management level, a new campus principal has been appointed at Redcar and Cleveland College and the organisation is currently recruiting for a campus principal at Stockton Riverside College, a director of human resources, three heads of department and four programme area leaders, to further strengthen its management team.
Changes are already taking shape at Redcar and Cleveland College where during their most recent Ofsted monitoring visit the education inspectorate reported on a “transformed” ethos of the college.
The Sir William Turner Foundation continues to deliver student support through Redcar and Cleveland College. The foundation has supported education in Redcar for over 300 years, and last year donating almost £20,000 to buy special equipment for several departments and assisting students to make overseas study trips.
Members of the public are being invited to have their say on the future of housing provision in Redcar and Cleveland.
The consultation draft of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s updated housing strategy is available for comment until Friday 26 October.
The draft strategy sets out an ambitious vision for housing in the borough until 2023 to identify the challenges and opportunities required to meet the area’s housing needs.
The housing strategy consultation is not limited to home-owners and social housing tenants. It also includes those in the private rented sector who may experience issues such as poor property condition, illegal eviction and harassment.
To assist with the consultation process, a questionnaire has been produced which is available from council offices and libraries.
