Police are appealing for witnesses after a man sustained stab wounds to his body and legs which are not life threatening.

He was injured during an incident on Wicklow Street in Middlesbrough, at around ten to nine on Monday night, then taken to hospital. 

A man and a woman were arrested at the scene but were released soon after when it was established that they were not involved.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A new free school in Redcar recently green lit by the Government could help cut pupil suspensions and permanent exclusions.

The ‘alternative provision’ school, which could be open by 2026, will offer 50 pupils aged 11 to 16 years old specialist support with their education who may otherwise drop out of mainstream schooling.

It was confirmed along with a number of others in Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s recent Budget announcement and in a letter by Education Secretary Gillian Keegan to Redcar MP Jacob Young.

An application by the River Tees Multi-Academy Trust for the school was successful with the trust now seeking to put in place a funding agreement with the Department for Education and identify a suitable site.

Some pupils will attend on-site full time while they transition to another provider or to post-16 education, employment and training.

The school will offer outreach and intervention places for mainstream schools where specialist support and therapeutic services can help to avoid suspensions and permanent exclusions.

 

Residents are being warned of ongoing works in Loftus as efforts to regenerate the town continue.

Work is under way to transform the old Loftus Library site into well needed parking spaces as part of the Loftus Regeneration Masterplan.

Works are due to take place for around 10 weeks to build the new 30 bay car park with disruption to locals and roads users expected to be minimal.
