A teenager has been struck by a car as he fled the scene of an early-morning crash in Middlesbrough.
An investigation is under way following reports that a Land Rover and Nissan X-Trial collided in the early hours of yesterday morning - leaving one of the cars overturned.
A number of occupants were seen fleeing the Land Rover, which ended up on its side in the collision.
As they fled, a 17-year-old male was hit by the Nissan and was later found by emergency services having suffered injuries to his leg.
Police and the North East Ambulance Service attended the scene and the Nissan X-Trail was located in the Turford Avenue area, a short distance away from the crash site.
Detectives have now launched an appeal to assist with their enquiries into the collision.
Anyone with information which may assist police is asked to call the non-emergency number 101.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area to assist an injured walker.
On Friday the team were asked to go to the assistance of a man who had fallen and sustained potential back and shoulder injuries whilst walking on Egton High Moor between Rosedale and Egton Bridge.
Upon arrival team members commenced an initial assessment before the casualty was secured in one of our vacuum mattresses and carried a short distance to the waiting ambulance for onward treatment at hospital.
Seven team members were involved.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council’s planning committee has approved proposals to transform Duncan Place in Loftus.
The historic building, where the youth and community centre is currently located, will be renovated to create a facility for the town which will bring together several council services within one improved building.
This includes the relocation of Loftus library into a new extension of the building, with a small refreshment counter, alongside revitalised spaces for youth and family activities including a brand-new community hall.
Works are expected to begin in September with a completion date of July 2023.
