The results of the election for The Police and Crime Commissioner for the Cleveland Police Area, and the Tees Valley Combined Authority Mayoral election have been announced.

Conservative Ben Houchen was declared the winner of the Mayoral election and will now commence his third consecutive term as Tees Valley Mayor.

Labour's Chris McEwan and Liberal Democrat Simon Thorley also ran for the role.

Lord Houchen won all five council areas, but with a reduced majority over Labour.

Meanwhile Labour's Matt Storey is the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland.

He replaces Conservative Steve Turner who lost out by 6,441 votes.

 

A dispersal order has been put in place in Guisborough in order to tackle anti-social behaviour in the town.

The order came into force at 3pm yesterday and will run until 6am tomorrow across Guisborough town centre.

It gives officers the powers to ask people to leave the area for the specified time period.

If they return, they could be arrested for breaching the order.

Anyone suspected of being involved in anti-social behaviour will be asked to leave the area.

Cleveland Police say that officers and PCSOs will be conducting high visibility patrols in the area.

Anyone who wishes to report any issues or concerns is urged to call police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Plans for a 5,000-seat arena in Redcar have taken a further step forward.

After months of negotiations, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has agreed terms to lease the former Coatham Bowl site to developers Coatham Arena Limited.

The agreement will allow the developers to progress with a detailed planning application in the expectation of the venue opening by 2028.

Those in favour of the venture say that it would create jobs and boost visitor numbers.

However some residents have highlighted concerns including a potential lack of parking provision, access issues and noise concerns.
