Police have arrested nine people following a series of raids involving officers aimed at tackling human trafficking for sex. The simultaneous raids in Stockton-on-Tees and Sheffield led to men being held on suspicion of conspiracy to rape, trafficking, blackmail and drugs offences. Immigration officers were also involved in the major operation, which was sparked by a young woman from Teesside telling police she had been trafficked around the country and subjected to serious sexual offences, including rape. Police smashed a door down in Bowesfield Lane, Stockton, and questioned one man before leading him away in handcuffs. It was one of seven properties in the town that were raided. As he was taken past reporters and into a police van, he looked confused and said:
A PDO gives an elevated status to a product, which can be celebrated in local communities, and at the same time as increasing business opportunities for producers.

History Early history In , a monastic cell was consecrated by St. Cuthbert at the request of St. Hilda of Middleburg to Whitby. The importance of the early church at “Middleburg”, later known as Middlesbrough Priory , is indicated by the fact that, in , it possessed four altars. Names of Viking origin with the suffix by are abundant in the area — for example, Ormesby , Stainsby, Maltby and Tollesby were once separate villages that belonged to Vikings called Orm, Steinn, Malti and Toll, but now form suburbs of Middlesbrough.
The name Mydilsburgh is the earliest recorded form of Middlesbrough’s name and dates from the Anglo-Saxon era AD — , while many of the aforementioned villages are recorded in the Domesday Book of
Obituaries of steel The obituaries which accompanied the end of large-scale steel production on Teesside ranged from local newspaper headlines to reflective national press articles seeking to understand the future for those for whom the industry defined and shaped a way of life. Front Page, Northern Echo, 13th October In the case of Teesside, as with other districts once shaped by heavy iron and steel manufacturing, this is writ large in the physical, institutional and cultural history and heritage of the area still evident in Despite long-term downturn in steel manufacturing both in the region and the UK in recent decades, tangible legacies of steel remain on Teesside today and continue to play a key role in the associational, cultural and recreational apparatus of the area.
Dorman Museum opening in , with kind permission of Middlesbrough Libraries. Hospitals, libraries and the neo-gothic Middlesbrough Town Hall, adorned with portraits of leading manufacturers Bolckow, Vaughan, Sirs Isaac Lowthian Bell and Hugh Bell, all emerged at least in some part due to paternalistic instincts of the industrial elite.
Even those visiting new developments such as the acclaimed Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art mima will encounter a statue of Vaughan remembered alongside fellow industrialist Sir Samuel Sadler in the nearby Centre Square. Yet in towns to the east of Middlesbrough which sprung up to house the workers at the nearby manufacturing plant and shipyards, there is little evidence of the institutions built to serve the industrial communities, with many of the town buildings razed to the ground amidst longer term decline and regeneration initiatives.
Further downstream towards Redcar, the new plant built during the First World War as steel production spread eastwards also saw the construction of the model industrial village of Dormanstown in its shadow, yet sadly with the closure of the steelworks the occupational link to the industry in the town is no more.

There have been proactive local projects in recent years to ensure that this heritage is not only recognized but also made accessible. Teesside Archives continue to explore new ways to make the records of the companies more accessible, whilst even though the steelworks site remains out of bounds to the public, there is work to ensure that the contribution of Teesside steel to the world is not forgotten.

We cover some of the same towns, compete for some of the same advertising revenue, and are both in the business of persuading people to buy our newspapers and visit our websites. For us to speak up on behalf of The Gazette may seem about as likely as Jose Mourinho offering a kind word to Pep Guardiola but sometimes you have to set aside self interest and look at the bigger picture.
The club has continued to offer some Gazette reporters unfettered access but the paper has taken a principled stance not to attend press conferences on the basis that no third party has the right to dictate which reporters are assigned to a story. Our natural instinct is to back our fellow journalists, even those who work for a local rival. We empathise with their stance, although the full details behind the spat have never been made clear as the club has remained tight-lipped.
Wherever the blame lies we believe that clear-the-air talks between both parties would be a sensible next step. In the meantime, a key point to emerge from this affair is that newspapers must remain fiercely independent from the influence of organisations, politicians and businesses. If we ever reach a point when we accept that they can dictate the terms of engagement then the free press as we know it will have died.

It is a compelling hour and a half in which the grainy, stuttering and unintentionally comical moving images of the s have been painstakingly coloured and digitized, with authentic sound and voices added.
