A man has been taken to hospital after a crash on a busy road in East Cleveland.

The incident happened yesterday on the A174 at Apple Orchard Bank, near Skelton.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Marske Lane at 12.30pm and the road remained closed yesterday afternoon following the two-vehicle collision.

A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said the accident involved a Volkswagen Golf and another unknown vehicle.

 

A man has been arrested and suspected cannabis worth an estimated £10,000 was seized after officers went to an address where drugs activity was believed to be taking place on Lovaine Street in the Newport area of Middlesbrough.

Neighbourhood officers went to the address on Thursday after observations in the area following a recent successful closure order nearby on Selbourne Street, where numerous reports had been received of drugs activity.

A 23-year-old man was stopped and searched and a quantity of suspected cannabis seized. The man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a class B drug.

A subsequent address search resulted in the seizure of £10,000 worth of further suspected cannabis, cash and drugs paraphernalia.

The arrested man was subsequently released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.

 

A £1.6 billion plan to repurpose Britain's largest gas storage facility for undersea hydrogen storage has been backed by Redcar MP, Jacob Young.

Located 19 miles off the East Yorkshire coast, a proposal to convert the huge Rough reservoir to store hydrogen - just as it did with gas - is being explored.

Bosses at Centrica Storage are asking the Government to deliver a funding mechanism for the overhaul to help provide a solution for the intermittent nature of both production and demand, while creating 350 permanent jobs and protecting hundreds more.

Thousands could be supported in construction, with new platform, pipeline and wells required. It is envisaged that construction roles could peak at 1,000 at Easington and offshore, with a further 1,000 in the local area over a three to four year period.
