Police have confirmed that they were responding to a sudden death after emergency vehicles attended a Teesside estate.

A number of ambulances and Cleveland Police vehicles were seen in the Longlands area of Middlesbrough on Wednesday morning.

Officers have now confirmed they were sadly responding to a sudden death at a house in Lanberry Green.

The incident is not being treated as suspicious.

Emergency service vehicles were present on two streets in the Longlands area, Lansdowne Road and Lanberry Green, close to the main A172 Marton Road road which runs through the area.

 

Latest figures show that the number of 999 calls answered in 10 seconds or less by Cleveland Police has improved over the past six months.

There has also been an overall reduction in the time taken to answer 999 calls from the public. In addition, fewer calls have been abandoned.

In March, 87.6 per cent of 999 calls were answered in 10 seconds or less – compared to 78.2 per cent in August 2021.

It now takes emergency call handlers an average of 4.1 seconds to respond – 3.3 seconds less than in August. 

The number of 999 calls abandoned also dropped by 0.4 per cent during the same six-month period.

 

The Saltburn Cliff Tramway is currently closed due to an issue.

The issue was identified during routine maintenance tests which have been taking place recently.

The lift operators say that engineers are looking into the cause of the issue and it is hoped that the Tramway will be up and running as soon as possible.
