One person hospitalised following 'violent incident' at Middlesbrough pub

One person was taken to hospital following a large medical response to a 'violent incident' at a Middlesbrough pub.

Emergency crews were called to the Jack and Jill pub, in Berwick Hills, on Saturday. Following the incident, there was a large cordon put in place around the pub.

On Sunday morning the cordon has been removed and ambulance bosses confirmed a patient was taken to hospital, but their condition is not known.

A spokesperson for the North East Ambulance Service said: "We were called to an incident at the Jack and Jill pub, on Crossfell Road, Middlesbrough, just after 5.40pm last night (Saturday 11 May). We dispatched two double crewed ambulances, a specialist paramedic, a duty officer and the medicar - which includes a paramedic and an officer from Cleveland Police. One patient was taken to James Cook Hospital."

Witnesses at the scene reported that a man was being treated on the floor by ambulance crews. Pictures from the immediate aftermath show a fleet of emergency service vehicles and police officers controlling members of the public.

On Saturday evening, a cordon around the pub and the nearby footpath was put in place and remained there until later into the night. A spokesperson for Cleveland Police said: "Cleveland Police are in attendance at the Jack and Jill pub in Crossfell Road, Middlesbrough, after officers responded to reports of a violent incident which happened shortly before 6pm today.

"Officers will remain at the scene for some time while the full circumstances of the incident are established. Members of the public are urged to avoid the area."

Anyone who witnessed the incident was urged to contact police by dialling 101, quoting reference number CVP-24-087342.
