A teenage boy has appeared in court for a string of offences after reports of a late-night shooting.

The Middlesbrough teen was detained by police on Friday, March 1, in connection with reports of a shooting at around 10pm in Eversham Road, Grangetown.

Cleveland Police confirmed the 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possession of a class A and class C drug, possession of a knife, disqualified driving and driving with no insurance.

Following questioning in police custody he was subsequently charged with the offences and appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.

The teenager was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and has been released on conditional bail.

Police confirmed another 16-year-old boy was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm.

He has been released on conditional bail.

 

Plans have been put forward to transform South Bank railway station.

The Tees Valley Combined Authority is hoping to develop a transport hub at the station in a bid to better connect South Bank residents to the wider Teesside Freeport area and the Teesworks site.

Proposals for the first phase of work have now been submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council.

Wider plans include a new station car park, a park-and-ride facility, a replaced and fully accessible footbridge over the railway line, and a widened platform, as well as road improvements.

A £40m allocation for the transport hub was signed off by TVCA Cabinet as part of a funding package back in January and will form phase two of the South Bank project.

 

The next community drop in session is taking place in our area this week.

The next session will be at at Laburnum Library in Redcar, this Thursday, between 11am – 1pm.

Anyone is welcome to pop along for advice, guidance and support from our staff and partners.

Organisations including Citizens Advice, Warm and Well Moneywise, MIND, Family Hubs and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council's Health Improvement team will be on hand to let you know all about what they do and how their services can be of benefit to you.
