Officers attended an address in the North Ormesby area after a call for assistance around 4am yesterday.

The latest demolition on the former Steelworks site did not go exactly to plan - due to complications with the explosions.
Yesterday afternoon the Incinerator Stack at Teesworks in Redcar was set to be blown down in a controlled explosion.
Just before 2pm, a spark was seen at the base of the Incinerator Stack followed by a loud bang, but it remained standing.
Around 10 minutes later, a second attempt was made to bring the huge structure down with long yellow guide ropes, but to no avail.
The flare stack is the latest demolition on the Teesworks site, along with the Coke Ovens Screen House, the iconic Blast Furnace and the Blast Furnace Stoves.
