A man has tragically died following a 'medical incident' at a Teesside landfill site.
The North East Ambulance Service was called to Augean's Port Clarence Waste Recovery Park in Middlesbrough on Monday at around 1.24pm after receiving reports that a man had become unwell while making a delivery at the site.
Two emergency ambulances and one clinical team leader arrived to support in treating the patient, who was in his 60s, but sadly he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Cleveland Police have confirmed that the man's death is not being treated as suspicious and a file is currently being prepared for the coroner.
The RNLI has launched a vital water safety campaign ahead of the bank holiday and half term week.
Experts at the charity are urging everyone planning to enjoy the coast to remember that if you get into trouble in the water, Float to Live.
Tilting your head back to submerge the ears is key; we all float best in slightly different positions so your legs may naturally sink and you may need to use your hands to scull.
Relax and try to breathe normally, then once your breathing is under control, you should call for help or swim to safety if you feel able.
If you spot someone else in trouble in the water you should call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
