Tributes have been paid to a schoolboy who died after a collision involving two motorbikes at the former motocross site in South Bank.

The family of 13-year-old Mason Wright, paid tribute to their 'diamond boy' as they released his photograph through Cleveland Police following the tragic incident which happened just before 6pm on Saturday.

The accident happened at the site close to the A66 in Middlesbrough and the Great North Air Ambulance attended the scene.

A spokesperson for Cleveland Police said that their thoughts are with Mason's friends and family at this extremely difficult time.

His family have requested privacy to allow them to grieve.

 

A Cleveland Police officer had his throat cut after being punched to the ground in a shocking knife attack in Middlesbrough.

The male officer witnessed an alleged drug deal taking place on Athol Street in the town and attempted to make an arrest.

He was then punched to the ground and pinned down by two men while the man who had punched him held a knife to his throat and cut it while making threats.

The attack happened on Saturday night at around 8.30pm.

Cleveland Police have now named 30 year old Aaron Gray as a man they want to speak to in connection with the knife assault and have appealed to the public for information on his whereabouts.

Anyone who knows where he is is urged to come forward.

 

The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboats were called into action in our area last night.

The crew were paged just after 7pm following reports of a child in difficulties in the sea at Redcar.

However before the lifeboats were launched the child was assisted by other people, and the crew were stood down whilst assembling. 

The public are reminded that if you see anyone in trouble on the beach or the cliffs you should dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.
