Cleveland Police have named a man who sadly died following an incident at the Jack and Jill pub at Berwick Hills at the weekend.

He is 42-year-old Carl James from Middlesbrough.

Officers were called to the pub, on Crossfell Road, shortly before 6pm on Saturday 11th May and Carl was taken to hospital where he later passed away.

Carl's family have asked that their privacy is respected during this extremely difficult time and officers say that their thoughts remain with his family and friends.

A 25-year-old man has been charged in connection with the incident and has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance.

 

Officers are investigating after a video was circulated on social media showing a gang attacking a man by punching and kicking him as well as stamping on his head.

The assault is believed to have taken place on Linthorpe Road, in Middlesbrough, between 9pm and 9.45pm on Saturday. 

Police have confirmed at least seven men were seen attacking the man while he lay on the floor.

The force said following enquiries, officers believe the victim had spoken to Boro Angels who offered him assistance by calling for an ambulance, however he left the scene before it had arrived.

At 10pm, the man was sighted speaking with door staff at Intrepid Explorer on Linthorpe Road.

He was joined by two other men who he is believed to know and walked in the direction of the Swatters Carr pub.

The victim is described as white, approximately 5ft 5ins tall with brown hair.

He was wearing dark grey joggers, grey T-shirt and had a man bag.

 

A cannabis farm believed to be worth over £33,000 has been recovered in Middlesbrough.

Officers from Middlesbrough Proactive Team discovered the plants at a property on Laycock Street in Newport, Middlesbrough, after reports of suspicious activity at the address.

40 cannabis plants were located, believed to be worth up to £33,600, and the electricity had been bypassed at the address.

Enquiries are ongoing to identify those involved, and officers would encourage anyone with information to call Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
