Police are warning members of the public about stolen medication which could prove dangerous if taken by someone who has not been prescribed them.
The medication was taken during a burglary at Lloyds Pharmacy at South Grange Medical Centre in Southbank at around 12.40am on Tuesday.
A quantity of controlled drugs were stolen including methadone tablets, durogesic patches and Oxynorm liquid were stolen, some which were out of date.
Non-controlled drugs were also stolen during the burglary.
The medication could be dangerous if taken by someone who has not been prescribed it.
Anyone who may have located any of the medication is asked to take it to their nearest pharmacy or police station.
Police are appealing for information after a man was injured, possibly after being hit by a car.
A 54-year-old man was discovered lying in the road with head and foot injuries between 8pm and 8.30pm at the junction of Levick Crescent and Acklam Road, close to St Francis Church in Middlesbrough on Saturday.
The man was helped by a member of the public, who police would like to speak to, as they investigate how the man came about his injuries.
An ambulance took the man to James Cook University Hospital, where he had surgery on his foot to insert metal plates and also suffered a minor head injury which required stitches.
Police would appeal to the member of the public who assisted the man to contact them as they may be able to assist with their enquiries.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Lee Benson on the non-emergency number 101.
Kirkleatham Museum & Grounds has retained the Visit England accreditation of a Quality Visitor Attraction.
Scoring an impressive 85% on its assessment, Visit England noted that the quality of customer service encountered in all areas and the retail experience, the car park is to an excellent standard overall, and that the range of content in the Museum was broad and relevant to the local area.
The museum attracted a record 112,000 visitors in 2017/18, with more than 10,000 guests welcomed in just one weekend (Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December) for a Victorian-themed Christmas event.
Next year’s Steel Stories exhibition, which is a celebration of the region’s steel history, is expected to see yet more people visit to enjoy this historic attraction.
