Firefighters were called to tackle a large fire in the grounds of Ormesby Hall yesterday evening.
Cleveland Fire Brigade was called to grounds of the Grade I listed building just before 7.15 yesterday evening to what was believed to be a barn on fire in the grounds of Teesside's historic stately home.
Five fire appliances were called to the scene to tackle the fire and it is too early to know what the cause might be.
It's the second time in a week that firefighters have been called to a fire at the hall grounds.
Last Wednesday, crews attended a building fire in the grounds of the hall at around 5pm.
Pictures from that scene showed a roof destroyed in the blaze and smoke coming from the building.
Police are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Middlesbrough.
As three women were leaving The Hub at Teesside University at around 10.40pm on Saturday night, they were approached by four unknown males, one of whom stole money from one of the women who is in her 30s while another attempted to snatch the handbag of another woman in her 60s.
The males then left the scene and went down Granville Road towards Linthorpe Road.
There were a number of people around at the time and officers believe a woman may have captured footage or photos of the suspects on her phone.
Officers are appealing for this person - as well as anyone else with information - to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
Visiting restrictions at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are set to return to a new normal tomorrow (Tuesday 12 July) following changes to national guidelines.
From tomorrow patients at The James Cook University Hospital, Friarage Hospital and Redcar, East Cleveland and The Friary community hospitals will be welcome to have up to two visitors at a time with open visiting seven days a week from 2pm to 4.30pm and from 6pm to 8pm.
Visitors will no longer need to book appointments to see friends and relatives on the wards unless they are in critical care.
