A man is being questioned after reportedly damaging a reception desk and being found with a knife at a local hospital.
The 47-year-old is also accused of assaulting a police officer after his arrest at the north entrance of James Cook University Hospital.
The incident allegedly occurred just before 8.30pm after hospital staff contact police to report a man who was believed to have smashed a glass panel at an unstaffed reception desk.
They also reported seeing a knife inside a case within his clothing.
Staff removed the knife and detained the man until officers arrived.
It is not believed that any threats were made and no-one was injured during the alleged incident.
More buildings have been demolished at the Teesworks site.
A planned explosive demolition was due to take place yesterday evening at the Redcar end of the site.
Work continues to clear the site, with more demolition work due to take place in the coming months.
The covid vaccination pop-up clinic is in Grangetown today.
The team will be at the Grangetown United and Community Hub on Derwentwater Road between 8.45am-5.30pm.
If you are planning on going along, you should ensure that at least 8 weeks have passed between your first and second jab.
16 and 17 year olds will only be able to get their first dose.
For boosters, you should make sure at least 6 months passed since your second dose.
12-15 year olds can also get a Pfizer vaccine if they have consent from a parent or guardian.
More details about the pop-up vaccination clinics in our area can be found on the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council website.
