A man has been sentenced to more than eight years after pleading guilty to offences including entering the grounds of a school when in possession of a knife.

19-year-old Ryan Anderson was yesterday sentenced to serve eight years and 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to nine offences including two robberies, an assault and possession of a bladed article.

The court heard how in May 2021 Anderson was reportedly involved in a fight, during which he entered the grounds of a Berwick Hills primary school, forcing the school to go into lockdown.

A police spokesperson welcomed the sentence which shows that those who carry knives and cause fear in their communities in this way will be dealt with robustly.

 

Police have seized another vehicle which was being driven illegally in our area.

Officers pulled over the maroon coloured Vauxhall Corsa yesterday for being illegally used on the roads in Redcar.

The car was stopped on Lord Street in Redcar, close to Fisherman's Square.

Anyone with information about vehicles which are being driven illegally in our area is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A half a million pound fund to set up impactful interventions to prevent people becoming involved in violent crime has opened for applications.

Police and Crime Commissioner Steve Turner, with support from the new Cleveland Unit for the Reduction of Violence, has made £500,000 available as part of ongoing work to reduce serious violence in the area.

The fund will be open to bids from community groups, social enterprises, public sector bodies and non-profit organisations working in or across Cleveland who provide support to people affected by, at risk of or involved in serious violence.
