Police are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage after an incident where a 17-year-old boy was assaulted and robbed in Stewart Park in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened around 7:40pm on Monday evening.

The victim was cycling through the park when a group of male youths approached him, pushed him from his bike and punched and kicked him before making off with his bag and the contents. He did not require hospital treatment.

The group then made off towards the museum within the grounds of the park.

Officers would like to appeal to any witnesses who may have been in the park at the time of the incident or anyone who may have dash cam footage of the group leaving the park to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Police are warning vehicle owners to be vigilant following five reports of thefts of catalytic converters in the Redcar and Cleveland area since the middle of August. 

Police are advising vehicle owners to park your vehicle in a garage if possible, consider installing private CCTV, and to install good quality lighting to potentially deter opportunist thieves.

Anyone with information about thefts of catalytic converters or vehicle crime in general is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101. 

 

Free compost bins are being offered to residents in Redcar and Cleveland.

A recent survey on waste and recycling, undertaken by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, revealed a keen interest in recycling food waste and composting.

As a result, the council is now offering a free composting bin to residents who will make use of one.

There are 400 compost bins available initially, and they are to be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Residents who need a composting bin can place their order by contacting the council's Customer Service team on 01642 774774.
