A cannabis farm has been seized in Middlesbrough after neighbourhood officers carried out a warrant on Costa Street.
Cannabis plants were located in the bedroom and loft of a property on Thursday.
The plants, which could potentially be worth up to £30,000 were seized.
A 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and he has been bailed pending further enquiries.
Meanwhile a woman was arrested yesterday morning after a drugs warrant was executed at an address on Parliament Road, also in Middlesbrough.
A quantity of prescription tablets, cash, phones and drugs paraphernalia were recovered from the property.
A 57-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class C drugs and she remains in police custody at this time.
A former steelworks structure has been brought down in a controlled explosion.
The Coke Ovens Screen House at the former steelworks site in Redcar was demolished at 2pm yesterday.
Ten explosive charges were detonated simultaneously to bring down the 39m rectangular structure.
Built back in 1979, the coke ovens were made of 132 individual chambers and were a huge park of Teesside's proud steelmaking past.
Following the blowdown of the main portion of the Redcar Coke Ovens in June last year, the Screen House was one of the final structures to be brought down.
After the demolition, staff from the Teesworks site surveyed the area to make sure all explosions had been detonated in the blast, before giving the all clear.
