Residents were forced from their homes after a gas cylinder fire in Middlesbrough - which workmen tried to put out with tarmac.

A large-scale emergency response was triggered after the fire on Meadowsweet Lane in Grove Hill, including two fire engines, half a dozen firefighters, and a number of police vehicles.

Members of the public were urged to stay away as 999 crews set up a cordon on the new build estate.

The burnt-out cylinder at the centre of the blaze could be seen at the side of the road after the cordon was lifted by emergency services at 3.55pm.

Cleveland Fire Brigade labelled the incident a "special service emergency" saying that it was a propane cylinder "gassing off and on fire"

 

A man has been charged after a number of alleged vehicle offences in Redcar.

The 37-year-old man was arrested after reports of a theft from vehicle, an attempted theft from vehicle and vehicle interference in the town, and has been charged in connection with four alleged incidents.

He was bailed, to appear at Teesside Magistrates' Court next month.

Police are reminding vehicle owners to remove valuables from cars and vans and to always lock vehicles when left unattended.
