A suspected murder victim whose body was discovered in Flatts Lane woodland has been identified.
Detectives yesterday named the victim as 39-year-old Tomasz Dembler from Poland and declared the probe a murder investigation.
Investigators believe Tomasz could have been killed in a targeted murder at some point from mid-March up until his body was discovered in the woods at Normanby on Monday.
The father-of-one has lived in the UK for the past 20 years, most recently in the Middlesbrough area, having previously resided in Darlington.
Cleveland Police said he has family in Poland and parts of the UK.
Officers are now working to find out more about his life and what his movements were over the last few months and the days leading up to his death.
Police are appealing for information after two police vehicles were damaged in the back yard of a police building on Kings Road in North Ormesby.
Two petrol bombs were thrown into the back yard by two males around 9:10pm on Wednesday, leaving one vehicle severely damaged and out of use and another vehicle scorched.
Thankfully, no officers or staff were harmed during the incident.
The road was closed whilst the Fire Brigade attended and whilst a number of enquiries were carried out yesterday morning.
Detectives are carrying out CCTV checks in the area and are speaking with local residents, as well as other enquiries.
Four students from a school in our area have been awarded for their artwork which challenges assumptions about the role of women.
The students from Laurence Jackson School in Guisborough, part of Vision Academy Learning Trust, will now receive bespoke Career Explorer prizes after their success in the #ChoosetoChallenge competition held as part of the region’s celebrations for International Women’s Day.
The culmination of the competition comes amid the launch of the Power of Women (POW) campaign which seeks to change the lives of young women in the Tees Valley area by shining a light on the positive accomplishments of women in the region.
The four winners will now get a specially tailored Career Explorer prize to suit their interests and abilities, which could range from work experience opportunities to a future workshop in their school.
