Cleveland Police detectives investigating recent firearms offences in the Grangetown area have appealed to the community and offered reassurance as the investigation continues.

Police are asking for the public’s help in appealing to trace 21-year-old Liam McElvaney from the Grangetown area who is also wanted in connection with the incidents.

A continued police presence from Cleveland Police remains in the area to reassure residents in the local community and a dedicated team of officers is working to identify and bring to justice those responsible.

Eight people were arrested last Thursday evening, and a further three on Saturday.

Further to those arrests, a 14-year-old boy was arrested on Sunday and a 29-year-old woman was also arrested yesterday.

So far, thirteen arrests have been made in connection with the incidents and enquiries are continuing.

 

A Middlesbrough man has died following a crash near to Darlington.

Officers were called to the A66 at twenty past midnight on Sunday after a white BMW 1 Series, travelling towards the town from Middlesbrough, was involved in a collision at the Great Burdon roundabout.

The driver and sole occupant of the car tragically died at the scene as a result of his injuries.

He has now been named as 25-year-old Joseph Potts from Middlesbrough.

Durham Constabulary is now appealing for anyone with dashcam footage of the vehicle before the incident took place to get in touch.

The force would also like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or seen the car before the incident. Please contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101.

 

Healthcare assistants in our area have taken to the picket lines as part of strike action over pay.

Staff from wards at The James Cook University Hospital lined the route outside the Middlesbrough hospital yesterday waving flags and signs as part of the protest.

More than 1,000 healthcare assistants on Teesside are set to join the strike which is set to last for three days.

UNISON announced the healthcare assistants employed by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will take the action as part of an escalating dispute over wage rates.

The action began at 8am yesterday and will continue for 72 hours until Thursday.
