A police investigation is under way after an incident in Redcar yesterday morning.
A cordon was erected on Lord Street at the junction with Charlotte Street yesterday morning.
Cleveland Police later confirmed that a man had been taken to hospital with stab wounds.
A number of police cars remained at the cordon during yesterday morning whilst clothes could be seen on the road inside the cordon.
Police are appealing for information after the theft of plants worth hundreds of pounds in Dormanstown.
The plants had been planted by the community and the local authority in a joint project to highlight Mental Health Awareness Week on Grassland in Broadway West, near to a bus shelter.
A large amount of the plants were stolen between 4pm and 4:30pm last Friday.
The suspects are described as two male youths, wearing face masks and riding pedal cycles.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Ambitious plans to transform Loftus High Street have been approved as part of the Government’s flagship Future High Street Fund.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council submitted a bid last year for a total of £8.49 million from the fund and has been successful in securing £5.8m which, when added to the £3 million from the Tees Valley Combined Authority and £575,000 from the Council, provides investment of £9.375 million for the town.
Highlights of the revised plans include relocating Loftus Library, rejuvenating Coronation Park, creating a new Skills, Training and Employment Hub and creating more quality housing and improving key gateways.
The first scheme from the Future High Street Fund is due to start later this year with improvements to the roads in the town.
