Police have said they are no longer treating the death of a man in a fire in Marske as a murder.

On June 9th this year police were called by Cleveland Fire Brigade colleagues to an address in Wheatacre Close in Marske, where a flat was on fire and a man, later identified as Steven McGowan, was discovered deceased.

Police began an investigation into the circumstances of Mr McGowan's death and a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Officers now say that the 25-year-old man has been released and no further action will be taken on this matter.

They say that they are now satisfied this was a non-suspicious death and will prepare a file for the Coroner.

 

A second major carbon dioxide producer on Teesside could be about to offer a solution to the national shortage crippling the UK.

Ensus at Wilton can supply 40% of the UK's entire demand of CO 2 - and bosses say the company is working hard to come back online following a routine shutdown.

It comes as CF Fertilisers in Billingham is preparing for a restart, after being forced to pause production last Thursday.

 

Children and young people in Redcar and Cleveland will benefit from improved safeguarding support relating to domestic violence from October 1st.

Operation Encompass, a nationwide police and education sector initiative, involves the sharing of information between police and schools in instances when young people have been exposed to domestic violence at home.

Redcar and Cleveland has now been successful in setting up an enhanced link between agencies, to include Cleveland Police, the borough’s schools and, now, health visitors and school nurses too.

From the 1st October, the Health Visiting and School Nursing service will receive notifications from Cleveland Police of all incidents of domestic violence that a child has witnessed or at a home in which a child resides.

This new initiative will provide additional opportunities to safeguard a child or young person from further exposure to domestic abuse, by allowing health visitors and school nurses to tailor and increase the support they give.
