A cannabis farm has been discovered in neighbouring addresses after a property caught fire in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened on Sunday on Lothian Road, when Cleveland Fire Brigade were called to reports of smoke coming from the roof of a house.

A small electrical fire was found on the upstairs landing, believed to be caused by faulty wiring.

Fire brigade colleagues who also checked the neighbouring property for damage then found cannabis plants located inside.

In total, around 200 cannabis plants at varying stages of growth were located, estimated to be worth up to £168,000.

 

Police are appealing for witnesses to a serious assault which happened in Middlesbrough on Saturday 28th August, which was the Bank Holiday weekend.

A man in his 20s was on Albert Road at around 2.20am when he reports being punched to the face causing him to fall to the ground and bang his head, fracturing his skull.

CCTV and other enquiries have been on-going since then, but no arrests have been made at this stage.

Anyone with information who has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Cleveland Fire Brigade have kicked off their firework safety campaign by urging everyone to stay safe and go to an organised display.

Middlesbrough Football Club mascot Roary the Lion joined firefighters at Middlesbrough Community Fire Station to remind people to keep on the ball with other key safety reminders such as never play with fireworks.

Fire Brigade advice is that watching fireworks at a secure site, behind a safety cordon, is the best way to celebrate safely and avoid injury.

The brigade are also reminding the public that you can report any issues such as anti-social behaviour anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
