Police have seized a vehicle following a pursuit in Middlesbrough at the weekend.

The white Ford Focus was pursued by police after it made off when it was seen in suspicious circumstances with an off-road bike in the Longlands area of Middlesbrough at around 1:30pm on Sunday.

The short pursuit led to the vehicle being abandoned on Lythe Place, where the driver is believed to have made off onto Sandford Close then Newington Road, and is then believed to have got into another white vehicle which drove away.

The driver is described as an adult male, wearing all dark clothing and a balaclava.

The Focus was subsequently reported stolen from the Middlesbrough area.

Anyone who may have information regarding the identity of the driver, or the theft of the vehicle, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A man has been arrested and suspected drugs seized in proactive patrols.

Officers carrying out plain clothed patrols in the area of Valley Road and Longlands on Saturday attempted to stop a male in the street after they suspected him of being involved in drugs activity.

The male made off and after a short pursuit was searched and found in possession of suspected cocaine, believed to be worth hundreds of pounds.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was later bailed whilst enquiries continue.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have announced that essential resurfacing works on the A174 Lazenby Bypass will start this coming Monday.

Subject to weather conditions, the works will take place between 8.00pm – 6.00am for 7 nights to minimise disruption.

The Eastbound carriageway will be closed between the A1053 Greystone Roundabout and the A1042 Kirkleatham Lane Roundabout.

A signed diversion route via the A1053 Greystone Road - otherwise known as the Mad Mile, then onto the Trunk Road and Kirkleatham Lane will be in place for safety reasons.

The council have apologised for any inconvenience the works may cause.
