This evening, the Redcar MP Jacob Young welcomed Home Secretary, Priti Patel, at Teesside International Airport.
The two sat down to discuss the Domestic Abuse Bill, immigration reform, rural crime (including the off-road bikes impacting local Eston Hills), extra funding for violent crime and the upcoming elections.
Since 2019, Cleveland Police have benefitted from 185 new police officers - with more on the way.
Thrilled by the visit, Jacob stated: "It was great to sit down and chat to Priti Patel about the people's priorities here in Redcar and Cleveland."
"Next week we have important elections for the Tees Valley Mayor, but also the Police and Crime Commissioner - and I'm supporting Steve Turner for the role to help turn around Cleveland Police."
