Net Zero Teesside has been named the UK's leading carbon capture scheme by the Government - putting it in line for a slice of £1bn cash.

The project is part of the East Coast Cluster, which aims to remove nearly 50% of all UK industrial CO2 emissions by 2040.

The Government cash will unlock a further £220m in development funding from the project's privately-backed consortium, which includes BP and other global players.

 

A gang of youths have been arrested after glass bottles were allegedly thrown at police in Hemlington.

Officers from Cleveland Police made a number of arrests yesterday in connection with the alleged offences.

Four youths, a 16-year-old girl and three boys aged 13, 14 and 16, from the Hemlington area, were taken into custody by police.

The arrests follow an incident on October 10 when police on Fonteyn Court had glass bottles reportedly thrown at them, whilst engaging with some younger children in the area.

 

Police are appealing for information on an early morning robbery in which an elderly gentleman sustained a broken hip.

The victim who is in his early 70s left the Best One convenience store on Borough Road in Middlesbrough at around 6.20am yesterday morning and an unknown man followed him for a short distance before pushing him over and stealing keys, a phone and a wallet from the elderly gentleman's pocket.

The suspect then fled the area. Officers attended and helped the gentleman, who later went to hospital.

The suspect is described as in his 20s or 30s, of large build, unshaven and wearing a dark coloured jacket.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police via the non-emergency number 101.
