It's been a night of political change in our area following yesterday's General Election.

In line with results across the rest of the country, it was Labour who claimed victories in the local polls.

In the Redcar constituency, it was Labour's Anna Turley who received the most votes and is now the new MP, taking over from Conservative Jacob Young.

Anna was previously MP for Redcar from 2015 to 2019.

In the Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland constituency, it was the Labour Party candidate Luke Meyer who received the most votes and becomes the new MP, taking the seat from Conservative Simon Clarke.

 

A man has been charged in connection with string of driving offences in Middlesbrough.

The charges relate to a stolen motor vehicle that was sighted by police and led to a pursuit.

The vehicle is alleged to have collided with another vehicle and the driver fled before being detained by police.

A 32-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday and taken into custody for questioning.

He was subsequently charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, handling stolen goods, going equipped for theft, driving while disqualified, without insurance and three criminal damage offences.

He appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday.

 

Police are appealing for information following a collision in Middlesbrough.

An 11-year-old girl was crossing Cawood Drive, close to the junction of Glendale Road, in Acklam at around 8.40am on Tuesday.

A silver Vauxhall Insignia drove around the corner from Glendale Road onto Cawood Drive and collided with her.

The girl was struck to the left side causing her to fall on to the bonnet and then to the ground.

While the driver of the vehicle spoke to the girl to ask if she was okay, he failed to remain at the scene to provide details and instead drove away.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
