Police have launched a murder investigation after a man sadly died at the weekend following an incident in Grangetown.
Just before 10.30pm on Thursday a Volkswagen Golf was travelling along Birchington Avenue heading towards St Hilda's Church, when it was in collision with a man riding an electric bike.
The 22-year-old male rider sustained serious head injuries and was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he sadly died yesterday evening.
Two men, aged 21 and 22, were arrested in connection with the incident at the weekend and they remain in police custody.
A 30-year-old woman has also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action in our area on Friday.
The team were contacted by Cleveland Police regarding two walkers who had become disorientated near to Roseberry Topping during one of the heavy rain showers that occurred across our area during the middle of the day.
Four Team members were sent to recover the pair who were found within about 35-minutes, just to the east of Roseberry Topping.
By then, the weather had cleared but they were cold and wet so were then taken to the team's base nearby to dry out and get warmed up with a hot drink before team members took them to their car to continue their journey.
A closure order has been granted after reports of disorder and antisocial behaviour at a flat in Middlesbrough.
As a result of reports of incidents from residents, officers provided evidence to the court regarding alleged drug dealing and associated crime, noise and disorder coming from large numbers of people attending the address at all times of day and night.
This led to the closure order being granted at the property for three months.
Anyone who has concerns regarding drug activity or crime and disorder in their local area, can contact Cleveland Police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
