Cleveland Police have confirmed that they have received allegations of historic abuse connected with football clubs on Teesside.

A spokesman has told ITV News that they relate to clubs at all levels of the game.

They've confirmed no further details, but say the allegations will be looked at as part of Operation Hydrant, which is a nation-wide investigation.

Similar allegations are being investigated by the Northumbria and North Yorkshire police forces.

Cleveland Police has received allegations of non-recent abuse associated with football at all levels and these allegations are being investigated.

All information relating to non-recent child sexual abuse allegations received by Cleveland Police is being forwarded to Operation Hydrant for the purpose of national operational coordination.

This involves collating and cross referencing all information received to avoid duplication, and ensure efficient and effective sharing of information.
