The Cleveland Local Resilience Forum has announced that the Coronavirus pandemic should be declared a Major Incident.

At a meeting of the regional multi-agency group yesterday, which works alongside local authorities including Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-On-Tees, it was agreed to announce this further step in order that the councils could action additional procedures and policies.

This is a regional multi-agency response and is being co-ordinated by the LRF in partnership with the Cleveland Emergency Planning Unit, Cleveland Police, Local Authorities, Cleveland Fire Brigade and local NHS services, among others.

 

Armed police closed a road in Marske road as the force helicopter and police dogs attended an incident.

Witnesses say that a fleet of police vehicles - including armed officers, the force helicopter, dogs and uniformed officers - turned up in Vicarage Drive at about 5pm yesterday, and closed off the street between the turning at School Close and Hummershill Lane.

A police dog was also spotted on scene.

By ten past five the police helicopter could be seen hovering overhead, with eye witnesses reporting officers giving chase to a person through School Close and Church Close.

The incident is said to have ended around 5.20pm.

 

Police are warning members of the public to be vigilant after a suspicious male approached a property in Middlesbrough and claimed that the victim’s dog needed taking into quarantine.

The incident occurred at a property in Marton when an unknown man knocked at the door and tried to advise the victim that their dog needed taking away.

When the man was questioned, he walked away and drove off in a white van.

He is described as being a tanned male with an unknown accent and has black hair. He was wearing a grey padded coat and dark/ black trousers.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
