A supermarket chain has drafted in a CCTV van to a Teesside store check out potential troublemakers.

Morrisons at Berwick Hills has been using a hi-tech “mobile CCTV unit”, which is usually based in West Yorkshire, to keep tabs on people outside the popular store.

The van, with yellow and blue markings, has logos for Morrisons and West Yorkshire Police on the side.

The van was spotted in action earlier this week.

It follows an incident last week when a security guard was involved in an altercation with youths.

 

PD Ports, one of the UK’s major port groups, has signed a multi-million pound, five-year contract with British Gypsum, creating new jobs and cementing Teesport’s growing reputation as the premier port for bulk handling on the country’s east coast.

Part of the global Saint-Gobain group, British Gypsum, which is the UK’s leading manufacturer in plaster and plasterboard products for the construction industry, will bring shipments from Europe directly into Teesport every two weeks where it will be stored in a new bulks warehousing facility.

The contract will create four new jobs at the port to handle British Gypsum’s UK gypsum rock imports, a vital component in the manufacturing process, destined for the firm’s Yorkshire and Cumbrian based facilities.  

 

Roads policing officers in Cleveland are being given new mobile defibrillators to help save lives in emergency situations.

The new equipment features a special setting for use with children and young people and replaces older models installed in some emergency response vehicles.

The heart-saving devices will be used by police during near-fatal incidents they deal with, or will be blue lighted to emergency cardiac scenes if they are the closest 999 response vehicle. They will be carried in some traffic patrol cars, dog unit vehicles, and armed response vehicles.
