Police are appealing for witnesses after a collision involving a car and a cyclist in Guisborough.

The incident happened at around 7.30am, on Monday at the junction of Wilton Lane and Bolckow Street in the town.

A 62-year-old male cyclist suffered a hip injury and was taken to James Cook University Hospital for medical treatment.

Any witnesses who have not already spoken with police or anyone who may have dash cam footage is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Five Teesside men have been charged in connection with a major Iraqi-Kurdish people-smuggling network probe.

The gang, aged between 27 and 47, were all arrested during a series of raids carried out by the National Crime Agency in 2018.

They are accused of smuggling hundreds of Iraqi-Kurdish migrants into the UK.

It is alleged the men were part of a Kurdish network which would use lorries to transport people from France, Belgium and the Netherlands into the UK.

A number of HGVs were intercepted on their way.

 

A man has been hailed a hero after rescuing two people and a dog from their burning home in Middlesbrough - just moments before an explosion blew out the windows.

Craig Watson was dropping his friend off when he noticed smoke billowing out of a property on Pannell Avenue, in Acklam.

The 46-year-old dashed into the terraced house and rescued a grandmother, her son and her dog.

Just moments after they were brought out of the house, a huge explosion blew out the back windows.

Mr Watson, and the occupants from the house, were to James Cook University Hospital where they were treated for smoke inhalation.
