Flammable chemicals stolen from North Tees Hospital

People have been warned to be vigilant after large quantities of pure alcohol and another flammable chemical were stolen from a Teesside hospital.

The 24 containers each holding five litres of xylene and 10 containers of pure alcohol were taken from North Tees Hospital in the past few days.

Police said that both substances could be very dangerous in the wrong hands.

Anyone who comes across the plastic containers is asked to contact the Cleveland force immediately.
