Police are appealing for information and dash cam footage after a young girl was injured in a collision in our area.

At approximately five to four on Monday afternoon the 11-year-old girl got off a school bus on Cass House Road in Hemlington opposite the junction with Earls Court Road.

As she began to cross the road a blue vehicle, which is thought to have travelled from the same direction as the bus, collided with her.

The girl sustained what's currently believed to be a minor leg injury and was taken to hospital by a family member so it could be checked over.

Police are appealing for the driver of this car - as well as anyone else with information who has not yet spoken to police - to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A man described by police as a "prolific shoplifter" has been convicted of six offences at court and received a suspended sentence and fines.

The 36-year-old man was arrested after police received reports of eight separate thefts from Tesco Express on Acklam Road in Middlesbrough in which hundreds of pounds of goods including washing detergents and chilled food items were reported to have been stolen.

He was charged in connection with the thefts and appeared at court when his case was adjourned, and he was given bail conditions not to enter the store.

He appeared again on Friday and was convicted of six offences.

 

Cleveland Fire Brigade is appealing for everyone to become a FireStopper in a new bid to reduce arson and violent attacks on Firefighters.

Anyone with any information about deliberate fires or violence against Fire Crews stays 100% anonymous when they use the new service. 

You’ll not be asked who you are, just what you know, so that we can investigate further.

It comes with Cleveland Fire Brigade being in the unwanted pole position of deliberate fires in the country – with 85% of all fire calls related to arson. The main targets are rubbish, grasslands, and vehicles.

There have also been incidents of youths starting fires and then ambushing crews when they arrive.
