Six people have been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the death of 39-year-old Tomasz Dembler, whose body was discovered earlier this month in woodland near to Flatts Lane Country Park.
Yesterday morning, specialist teams carried out dawn raids on properties across the Cleveland area and at one address in Hull.
Two properties in Middlesbrough, two in Grangetown, one in North Ormesby and one in the Spring Bank area of Hull were all targeted as part of yesterday's significant policing operation. Five polish men and one polish woman, all between the ages of 27 and 44, were arrested and are in police custody.
The investigation continues at pace and detectives have established that Tomasz could have been killed at some point from mid-March up until his body was discovered by two members of the public.
Officers believe that this was a targeted murder and this continues to be a significant line of enquiry.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police directly on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council says it will look at more effective measures to tackle the use of chinese lanterns as a matter of urgency.
The move follows an incident in February when a flying lantern struck a barn near Guisborough, sparking a fire, which was prevented from spreading to a nearby stable block containing ten horses by the quick thinking actions of farm hands.
A motion by Councillor Anne Watts, member for Belmont ward, was unanimously passed at a meeting of the local authority last week.
It called for a report to be prepared for cabinet with a view to implementing the most appropriate action available to the council, along with consideration of a publicity campaign warning of the dangers of such lanterns.
As well as the fire risks, the RSPCA charity says they can be ingested by animals, who also face the risk of becoming entangled within them.
Residents in our area are being told that side waste will no longer be collected by refuse collectors.
At the beginning of the lockdown, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council temporarily suspended their ‘no side waste’ policy for household waste bins in order to assist residents in managing their waste levels with more residents spending more time at home.
However the council says that now that we are moving through the roadmap out of lockdown, more workplaces are opening, and many residents are no longer working from home, and so that other waste collections are not affected, we must return to implementing the ‘no side waste’ policy.
This means that crews will no longer collect extra bags of waste when collecting household waste. However, you can still present side waste for collection with your recycling and garden waste collections if it is presented in clear sacks so that the crews can clearly see the contents.
Residents can also make use of Dunsdale Recycling Centre to take excess amounts of waste.
