A change to policing: PCC elections explained
Police are appealing for witnesses following the theft of thousands of pounds worth of audio visual equipment in Gateshead. The theft happened at a car park on Neilson Road in Gateshead when a crate was being unloaded from a lorry on Monday June 17th at 1pm.
Two men jumped over the wall of the car park and grabbed the crate and walked off through the lane at the rear of Burlison Gardens towards George Smith Gardens.
The two offenders are described as:
- White men
- Aged approximately 20-years-old
- One had a thin build, a shaved head and was wearing a blue tracksuit top with black sleeves, black tracksuit trousers and white trainers.
- The second man was wearing a light coloured tracksuit top.
Officers are carrying out house to house enquiries and asking anyone who was in the area and who may have seen or heard anything suspicious to contact them on 101 ext 69191 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Some bright spells at first, mainly in the north.
Cloud increasing from the south, spreading across the whole region and bringing an increasing risk of rain or showers through the day.

Fourteen members of a wide ranging drugs ring, which flooded North Yorkshire with cocaine, ecstacy and other Class B drugs are facing jail tonight.
ITV News Tyne Tees has had exclusive access to covert police surveillance, which resulted in the convictions of gang members during two separate trials, the second of which ended today, June 19.
The juries in both cases heard how the gang supplied drugs to street level dealers for several years.
The men convicted today peddled their drugs in York City Centre.
Rachel Bullock reports:
Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected last autumn to every force in England and Wales.
Commissioners are responsible for keeping our streets safe and making police forces more accountable to the public.
Our PCCs are:
Durham: Ron Hogg (Labour)
Cleveland: Barry Coppinger (Labour)
Northumbria: Vera Baird (Labour)
North Yorkshire: Julia Mulligan (Conservative)
The role got off to a shaky start due the low turnout at November's election. Since then, PCCs have drawn up long term plans for their forces.
Helen Ford has been investigating the mark our PCCs are making.

Llambias joined the magpies five years ago. He says he is proud of what has been achieved in that time and will be a Newcastle fan for life.
This fanzine editor though says, despite an eventful week off the pitch, today's news may not be a bad thing.
