The death of a man is being treated as unexplained after the discovery of a body in Eston.

Cleveland Police has confirmed officers were called to Eston Cemetery, on Normanby Road, shortly after 2.50pm yesterday.

The force said the body of a man was found at the scene.

Crime scene investigators could be seen at the scene throughout yesterday afternoon as investigations continued.

Officers were seen in the bushes from the roadside and a police cordon was set up.

Scenes of crime officers left the cemetery at 5.20pm although the cordon maintained by PCSOs remained in place.

 

Teesport has become the first UK port to actively minimise the risk of plastic pellets from leaking into the environment, as its operator PD Ports signs up to the Operation Clean Sweep initiative.

The project, run in the UK by the British Plastics Federation, introduces measures to keep plastic 'nurdles' safely away from rivers and seas. 

Simon Clarke, MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, announced the landmark agreement, while presenting the Operation Clean Sweep certificate to PD Ports at a BPF reception at the House of Commons on Monday.

He described the agreement as a major step forward in the fight against plastic pollution, and said it will delight the hundreds of his constituents who take part in regular beach cleans at Saltburn and along the local rivers and streams in our area.

 

Guisborough Amateur Swimming Club is on the starting blocks for a bright new future after winning support from local charity Teesside Philanthropic Foundation.

The long-established club’s hopes of nurturing a new generation of talented East Cleveland swimmers had taken a dive due to outdated equipment.

But a £2,000 Foundation donation, together with a series of fundraising events by swimmers and volunteers alike, means four new starting blocks and a backstroke ledge are now being used at five-times-a-week coaching sessions at Guisborough Swimming Club.
