Nine people have been arrested following raids across Teesside on Tuesday.

Machetes, firearms, cash and drugs were discovered at addresses across Teesside in an operation targeting those believed to be involved in organised crime.

On Tuesday morning, Cleveland Police officers swooped on seven properties in Limetrees Close in Middlesbrough, a house on Durham Road in Stockton, a property in Hemlington and a house on Bevanlee Road in South Bank.

Three women, aged between 29 and 59, and six men, aged from 22 to 37, have been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences.

They all remained in police custody on Tuesday evening.

 

The heartbroken relatives of a Middlesbrough man allegedly murdered in Somerset have paid tribute to the "big hearted" family man.

Globe-trotter Paul Wells, 39, died on Thursday following an incident in the Edithmead Lane area of Highbridge, near Somerset.

Avon and Somerset Police launched a murder investigation after his body was discovered and officers arrested a 44-year-old man on suspicion of murder. 

A post-mortem revealed he died as a result of stab wounds.

 

Police are appealing for witnesses after a fail to stop collision whereby a 7-year-old child was injured in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened at around 9:15pm on Friday in Central Mews in the town centre.

The driver of a red, small delivery-style van did not stop at the scene and the 7-year-old boy was left with minor injuries to his face, ankle and leg.

The boy was taken to James Cook University Hospital and was released after treatment.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone who may have private CCTV or dash cam footage, or any information regarding the registration of the vehicle, is asked to contact PC Spencer Kindon from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.
