Police are appealing for information and any dashcam footage from motorists after a cyclist was pushed from his bicycle by someone in a passing vehicle.

At around 6.35pm on Monday evening, the man, who is in his 40s, was on Kirkleatham Lane, between the roundabout at Coatham Road, riding towards the car garages at the crossroad with the Trunk Road.

He had just passed over the railway bridge when a vehicle drove past him and an unknown person inside the vehicle pushed him off his bike and into some bushes, causing minor injuries.

Several motorists stopped to help the cyclist however no details were obtained from these people at the time.

Officers are appealing for these drivers and anyone else with information to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Police have tracked down suspected stolen goods and arrested two men after a report of burglary in Middlesbrough.

The burglary happened on Bush Street on Tuesday.

Stolen property included keys with a tracking device fitted, which officers from Middlesbrough Neighbourhood Team were able to use to lead them to an address and locate the keys within it.

Other recovered items include a 55" TV, two laptops, phones, coats, wallets and bank cards.

Two men aged 43 and 49 were arrested on suspicion of burglary and have been bailed whilst enquiries continue.

 

Cleveland Fire Brigade is asking everyone to keep their eye on the ball and not to drink and cook during the World Cup which starts this weekend.

With a third of all house fires caused by cooking, the brigade says that it may be easy to get distracted while watching the games and not taking care in the kitchen.

The message is simple – distraction is destruction, so enjoy the World Cup safely.

The campaign runs in the build up to the first game tomorrow through to the World Cup Final on Sunday 18 December.
