Emergency services were called to an estate street after a man was injured in a reported fight.
Cleveland Police were called at around ten to one on Sunday reporting that a man was lying in pain and distress on the pavement after suffering an injury to his leg.
Police arrived and taped off Cranmore Road, close to the junction with Charlbury Road, in Pallister Park, Middlesbrough.
They then marked out areas of evidential interest before scenes of crime experts arrived to carry out more in depth investigations.
Neighbours say there had been a fight and a gang of men ran from the scene - however, this has not been confirmed yet by authorities.
One neighbourhood in our area has seen its Covid infection rate rise above 700.
According to Public Health England's Covid map, Loftus and Skinningrove is currently the worst affected area on Teesside with 708.9 infections per 100,000 people.
In the last week, the area has recorded a surge of 18 cases resulting in a total of 36 infections.
Redcar and Cleveland residents will be able to have their unwanted bulky items removed by the council once again from tomorrow.
Bulky waste collection services - along with garden waste services - were suspended in July due to Covid-related staffing issues.
Garden waste collections resumed during August, and now, the council are pleased to announce the resumption of bulky waste collections too, with appointments available for booking from Tuesday 7th.
Residents are able to dispose of bulky items free of charge by taking them to the Dunsdale Recycling Centre; however, if this is not possible, council collections can be arranged for a charge by ringing 01642 774774.
