A man has been convicted of the murder of a vulnerable woman in Middlesbrough.

The body of 50-year-old Glenna Siviter was discovered inside an address on Grimwood Avenue in the town in December last year.

47-year-old Andrew Hall of Thorntree Avenue in Middlesbrough, has also been further convicted of attempted murder and section 18 wounding against two associates, Samuel Harker and Craig Woodier.

Hall was arrested and interviewed extensively by police and subsequently charged with all three offences, appearing at Teesside Magistrates’ Court in January this year.

Hall pleaded not guilty and opted for a trial at Newcastle Crown Court. 

Today, Hall was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 36 years for murder, an additional 27 years for attempted murder and 5 years for wounding with intent, to run concurrently.

 

Police have confirmed the sudden death of a man following an incident that saw emergency vehicles called to a street in Guisborough.

Cleveland Police, Crime Scene Investigation, and Cleveland Fire Brigade attended Warwick Road in the town following an incident in the early hours of Wednesday.

Cleveland Police said at the time that it was an "isolated" incident.

On Thursday, the force confirmed that officers attended a report of the sudden death of a man aged in his sixties at around 5.40am.

The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time and a file will be prepared for the Coroner.

 

The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat have been called into action in our area.

Just after twenty five to nine on Wednesday evening the Redcar Atlantic lifeboat was launched to assist with the rescue of a person who was reported to be in the water at Marske.

The incident was resolved by police a short time later.

The lifeboat and the volunteer crew were then able to return safely to the boathouse.

Members of the public are reminded that if you see someone in trouble in the sea you should dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.
