Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a 14-year-old boy suffered an injury to his chest causing a punctured lung, which is believed to have been caused by a knife.

The boy suffered the injuries on The Larches in Teesville at around 10:30pm on Saturday.

Officers are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding how the boy came about his injuries.

Detectives also believe that there were other youths present at the time who they are urging to come forward.

The boy remains in James Cook University Hospital in a ‘stable’ condition.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent and he has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Anyone who may have information regarding the incident or anyone who may have witnessed it is asked to contact Detective Constable James Garrett from Redcar and Cleveland CID on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

A man has been taken to hospital after escaping a fire through a first floor window at his home in Marske.

The incident happened on Church Close in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Cleveland Fire Brigade sent four appliances to the scene just after midnight.

The flat was destroyed in the blaze and there was severe smoke and water damage to the ground floor flat.

The man was taken to James Cook University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

 

Dozens of objectors have packed out a public meeting in Saltburn to express concern over plans for a new clifftop restaurant.

The meeting, led by a group called 'Respect Saltburn’s Heritage', said the scheme could spoil more than half a mile of uninterrupted sea vista.

Developer Oleos Leisure wants to build a contemporary venue at an unused look-out, known locally as the 'White Elephant'.

The ambitious scheme, built out from the cliff-face, would boast split-level decked terraces leading down towards the sea and a single-storey structure on the upper prom.
