Police have released CCTV images of a man would like to speak to in connection with a robbery at McColl's on Birchington Avenue in Grangetown.

The incident occurred on Saturday 1st September at 8:40am when a man entered the store and threatened the shopkeeper with a weapon and stole three packets of cigarettes.

The man is described as being of slim build, around 6 ft tall and he was wearing dark clothing.

The shopkeeper was uninjured.

The CCTV images are available on the Cleveland Police website and Facebook page. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone with information regarding the man shown in the CCTV images is asked to contact PC Ben Docherty on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Restaurants, cafes and takeaways in our area are being reminded to put fire safety on the menu as Cleveland Fire Brigade staff are out and about across Cleveland to “inform and warn” about the standards required.

They will be offered free help and advice and given a check list to ensure they have the right ingredients to protect their premises from fire.

The scheme runs next week and is a chance to comply with the legislation prior to Fire Safety Audits being carried out later in the year.

The top three causes of fires in restaurants and takeaways are kitchen appliances, dirty ducting and electrical faults.

Food businesses failing to comply with regulations face unlimited fines, imprisonment or prohibit the use of the premises.

 

Representatives from Cleveland's blue light services gathered at the new Community Safety Hub yesterday to mark Emergency Services Day.

Leaders from Cleveland Police, Cleveland Fire Brigade, North East Ambulance Service, HM Coastguard and Cleveland Mountain Rescue, local authority representatives and MPs were invited to a flag-raising ceremony by Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger.

Each organisation had the chance to say a few words about why they were proud of their service, before the Emergency Services flag was raised.

The first ever national Emergency Services Day will take place at 9am on Sunday, which is the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month, at Heaton, Park in Manchester.
