Police investigating an incident in Middlesbrough in which a man was seriously injured have arrested a teenager on suspicion of attempted murder.

The 17-year-old boy was taken into custody for questioning.

The incident happened around 8.20pm on Friday at an address in Hubbard Walk, when the 35-year-old victim was shot at with a firearm.

He remains in hospital receiving treatment.

Police are still looking for two other men they would like to speak to regarding the incident.

They are 25-year-old Nathan Blagg and 22-year-old Michael Kinlan, both from Middlesbrough.

Anyone who thinks they might have seen Nathan or Michael is urged to get in touch with Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A dispersal order has been put in place in Redcar following antisocial behaviour in parts of the town.

The order has been put in place after reports of what has been described as aggressive begging, causing harassment and distress to local shoppers, a dispersal order has been put in place for the area bounded by Lord Street, Lime Road, Wilton Street, West Dyke Road, West Terrace and the Esplanade.

The order came into place at 5pm yesterday, and will be in place for 48 hours, until 5pm tomorrow.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council says it still has no potential re-opening date for Saltburn’s iconic cliff lift, although repair work has started following an electric fault which sparked a blaze in January.

The Council previously said a full rewire would be needed, along with “careful restoration” of the station associated with the grade II listed structure, which dates back to 1884.

The council had to wait for the required listed building consent, which was granted earlier this month.

Planning papers state how a fire damaged pump room in the station building is intended to be restored with electrical equipment and broken glazing replaced and a re-paint planned.

The popular attraction is the oldest water-balanced cliff ‘funicular’ still in operation in Great Britain and the second oldest in the world.
