T/Chief Superintendent Alison Jackson, said: “Officers are continuing to pursue a number of lines of enquiry in connection with the firearms incident which is why there has been an increase in police presence tonight.

“The Force will not tolerate any incidents involving firearms and we will relentlessly continue to pursue all enquiries until the investigation is complete.

“We understand a large police presence can sometimes be unsettling for the community but this is an isolated incident that we are dealing with and there is no specific threat to the wider public.

“We would like to thank everyone for their patience whilst our enquiries continue.”

Police are still appealing for anyone with dashcam footage or private CCTV in the area of the incident to please contact Cleveland Police on 101 quoting event number 133861.
