Police are appealing for information following a fatal collision in Middlesbrough.

Shortly after 1pm on Tuesday police were called to a one-vehicle-collision on Marton Road.

A white KIA vehicle was reversing out of a driveway when the driver suffered a medical episode at the wheel and collided with a tree.

Sadly, despite efforts by paramedics, the 87-year-old man died at the scene.

An 81-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the car, was taken to James Cook University Hospital and is currently in a serious but stable condition.

Enquiries in relation to the collision are ongoing and officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

 

Police investigating a house explosion in Berwick Hills are continuing their enquiries into the incident.

The scene of the explosion remains cordoned off due to the structural danger the damaged building poses.

Cleveland Police say that they are working closely with Middlesbrough Council, Cleveland Fire Brigade, Northern Power Grid, and other local partners, to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and make sure those affected by the incident are receiving the necessary support.

The 57-year-old man who was seriously injured in the incident is in hospital in a critical condition.

Anyone who saw the explosion, or who has any CCTV, Doorbell, or phone footage of the incident, is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Residents in our area are being given a chance to learn more about what could be Europe’s largest battery storage plant due to be sited at the Teesworks industrial site.

The Teesside Gigapark project will enable up to 1,000 Megawatts of additional clean energy to be plugged into the national grid. An electric vehicle charging facility is another element potentially being brought forward.

The firm behind the planned project NatPower UK is part of the NatPower group, which has 25 years’ experience in the energy sector and has assets developed in 20 countries, including the US, Italy and Kazakhstan. It has signed an option for up to 50 acres of land with Teesworks Limited, the private/public partnership developing the former steelworks.

A public exhibition of the plans is now taking place next Wednesday (June 26) at St Hilda’s Church in Roseberry Road, Redcar from 2pm to 7.30pm. Residents will be able to put questions to members of the project team who will be hand to discuss the proposals.
