Police are appealing for information, as an investigation continues into an assault which left a man receiving hospital treatment.

It happened at around 5.20pm on Saturday outside the Sainsbury’s store on Bankfields Road in Eston.

The 62-year-old victim was assaulted by another man and sustained serious facial injuries which were treated in hospital overnight.

Police believe a number of members of the public were in the area at the time and would ask them, as well as anyone else with doorbell, dashcam or CCTV footage to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A man has been charged following an alleged weapons incident in Middlesbrough.

Officers were called to Saltersgill Avenue in the town on Saturday morning following reports of a man with a weapon.

A 28-year-old man was arrested and subsequently charged with affray and possession of an offensive weapon.

Middlesbrough CID also charged the man with a separate offence of robbery.

He appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.

 

New figures have revealed that two huge gigs in our area have brought a boost of more than £1.9million to the local economy.

More than 33,000 people flocked to the Riverside Stadium in May to see pop legends Take That light up the stage.

And a homecoming gig featuring singer-songwriter James Arthur saw more than 22,000 turn out for his ongoing tour.

Data analysis has shown the two big events brought a boost of more than £1.9million to Middlesbrough.

More analysis is expected to show the gigs brought benefits well beyond £2million to both Middlesbrough and the wider Tees Valley.
