A man has been charged after a bottle containing hydrochloric acid was left on a train at Middlesbrough station.

British Transport Police (BTP) appealed for information after the incident, which closed the station and cancelled services on Sunday.

Officers were called after passengers reported a burning smell.

A 27-year-old, of no fixed abode, has been charged with threats to kill, manufacturing a weapon to discharge a noxious substance and public nuisance.

He will appear before Teesside magistrates later.
