Police are appealing for information after two elderly brothers, both aged in their seventies, were robbed at an address in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened at around 5.30pm on Acklam Road on Saturday.

The first male suspect attended the property and asked for water for his child, as he claimed that his car had broken down nearby.

The victim closed the door in order to go and get a glass of water and upon his return to the door found a second male suspect present.

The suspects pushed the elderly man to the floor and stepped over him to get into the house.

One of the suspects stood over the victim to prevent him from getting up whilst the other suspect searched the property. The second victim was in the living room as this took place.

Both suspects then left the address with a large amount of cash.

Anyone with information regarding those responsible or the incident is asked to contact Detective Constable Victoria Docherty on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has questioned the Minister for Clean Energy, on her government's support for carbon capture and storage, a technology crucial to the future of industry on Teesside.

Cutting the amount of carbon produced by industries is crucial if the UK is to meet its legally binding climate change targets, but the challenge is to do that without losing jobs and making our industries uncompetitive.

Speaking at a meeting of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee, Anna has challenged the energy minister Claire Perry MP to explain what work the government are doing to support industries with the push to decarbonise.

 

Work has begun to convert the former Olympia Gym in Redcar into accomodation.

The building, next to the former Coatham Hotel on the Esplanade in Redcar, has stood empty and derelict for more than 15 years.

Now local property developer Steven Green from SG Renovations has purchased the building and is looking to invest up to £1.5 million in bringing back to life and use.

Steven told Zetland FM about his plans for the building.
