Cleveland Police have unveiled their plans to keep order ahead of a major football match.

Extra mounted police, drug search dogs and a police dispersal order are amongst the measures to be put in place ahead of Boro's clash with Leeds United on Wednesday night.

The Championship fixture kicks off at the Riverside in Middlesbrough at 7.45pm.

The same fixture last February was marred by ugly scenes in the town centre after the away side netted a late equaliser.

Bottles were thrown and skirmishes broke out on Albert Road with fans clashing on routes around the ground.

 

Plans for the tallest office block anywhere from Leeds to Glasgow have been submitted - and companies have already signed up to move in.

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston revealed yesterday that a full planning application for the 20-storey Boho X office development had been submitted.

At 260ft, the tallest office building between Leeds and Glasgow, Boho X will be built on land close to where the original Middlesbrough Farm once stood before the growth of the town as a 19th century capital of industry.

Speaking to business leaders at Middlesbrough FC’s Riverside Stadium, Mayor Preston said the initial £45m project represents the biggest single investment in the town’s history. He unveiled new artist’s impressions of a building that could eventually be the workplace for up to 1,000 people.

 

A fundraising page has been set up to help raise money for a Redcar family who have lost everything in a house fire.

Emma Batey and Matthew Brown's Redcar home went up in flames last Wednesday leaving them with only the clothes they stood in as they left their family home.

The couple, who have two young children Aubrey and Adley, also lost two of their beloved pet cats named Barnaby and Turnip.

Upon inspection of the house, the family will not be able to return to rebuild their lives for at least six months and are currently living in a hotel.

The fundraising can be found online at gofundme.com
