A man charged with murder following the discover of a woman's body in our area has appeared in court.

The 46-year-old is charged with the murder of 50-year-old Glenna Siviter, whose body was found in a home on Grimwood Avenue, Brambles Farm, Middlesbrough.

He's also charged with the alleged attempted murder of a 45-year-old man following an incident in Laycock Street, Middlesbrough, on Friday October 15.

Cleveland Police confirmed on Monday that they believed the two incidents to be linked.

Hall, of no fixed abode, appeared in court wearing a grey t-shirt.

He was remanded in custody by magistrates to appear at Teesside Crown Court tomorrow.

 

The storeroom of a supermarket in Middlesbrough has been left "severely damaged" after a fire broke out yesterday.

Police and fire crews were called to the Tesco Express store on Marton Road at 2.40am yesterday morning after a fire broke out.

Multiple roads were closed off by emergency services while fire crews tackled the blaze - with six engines from Middlesbrough, Grangetown, Coulby Newham, and Stockton attending the scene.

Tesco has confirmed that the store remains closed while repairs works are ongoing.

 

A defibrillator has been installed at the Regent Cinema in Redcar in memory of a much-loved community role model.

Karen Davies and her family from Redcar have made it their mission to help prevent other people from experiencing painful loss, after her husband Steve’s died suddenly in January 2022 at the age of 65 caused by a cardiac arrest due to heart disease

The latest defibrillator donated by charity was installed this week outside The Regent Cinema.

During his life, Steve volunteered for several local charities and organisations, and he also coached junior football teams, managing Marske United for 5 years, as well as being a forest ranger at Flatts Lane Country Park and a steward at the Tour de Yorkshire bike race.

Due to Steve’s extensive connections both with local businesses and charities through his volunteering work, the family have managed to raise more than £9,000.
