A woman has been cautioned after a pram was reported stolen from a local hospital.
Earlier this week, a pushchair was allegedly taken from the maternity ward of James Cook University Hospital while the victim - who had only just purchased the pram that day - was in an appointment.
Cleveland Police previously released CCTV images of two women they wished to speak to in connection with the theft, with both being located on Tuesday.
Two women, aged 41 and 23, were interviewed voluntarily regarding the incident.
The force has now confirmed that a 41-year-old woman was released without charge and a 23-year-old woman received a caution.
The pram has now been returned to its owner.
Police are appealing after two teenagers were assaulted by three adult males after the Middlesbrough FC game against Stoke City on Saturday.
The incident happened around 5:05pm as two teenage boys aged 14 and 17 walked with a Grandparent towards the west stand car park at the Riverside Stadium to see the Stoke City players getting on the team coach.
They were approached by three adult males, believed to be Middlesbrough FC supporters, who assaulted both boys by hitting them.
Paramedics at the Club treated both boys at the scene.
Officers are continuing with CCTV enquiries and would appeal to anyone with information to contact them on 101
Organisers behind the Skinningrove Bonfire have confirmed the event has been cancelled for good.
The annual event, which has seen crowds flock to the village since it began in 1982, has officially come to an end after organisers spent "considerable time and effort seeking ways to resolve, mitigate or manage" issues they were facing.
While it may have come to an end, those behind the event say they are very proud of everything achieved.
The last Skinningrove Bonfire was held in 2019, as a tribute to “Skinningrove’s Greatest Showman”, a former North Skelton ironstone miner Harry Cooper.
However, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 event, and "ongoing uncertainty" over restrictions was the reason behind it not going ahead in 2021.
