A further arrest has been made by Cleveland Police after a three-year-old was struck down by an e-bike on Tedder Avenue, Thornaby on the afternoon of July 10.

Officers have now arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection with the collision, four days after a 19-year-old man was arrested as enquiries continue.

Both teenagers have since been bailed whilst police carry out their investigation.

A large emergency service presence was spotted at the scene of the incident including support from the Great North Air Ambulance.

At the time of the collision, a Cleveland Police spokesperson said: "A three-year-old boy was knocked to the ground by a teenager riding an e-bike on Tedder Avenue at 3.30pm this afternoon, Monday 10th July.

"The toddler and his mother were crossing with the lollipop lady, near to Christ the King RC Primary School, when a teenager wearing all black clothing, continued to ride over the crossing and knocked the toddler to the ground.

"His injuries, whilst initially thought to be serious, turned out to be only minor cuts and bruises.

"However, he was taken to the University Hospital of North Tees to be checked over and for an x-ray on his arm."
