In the year 2015-2016, savings of almost £5m have to be found.

Barry Coppinger is keen to move from the force's current HQ on Ladgate Lane in Middlesbrough as it is too expensive to run. The land would be sold for development.

Mr Coppinger said he is awaiting the findings of a report, due to be handed to him in the next few weeks, before making a final decision.
