Police cordon at petrol station.
A SECTION of Wolviston Services' petrol station was taped off by police last night.
About four pumps on the forecourt of the busy BP Garage were cordoned off as Cleveland Police officers and scenes of crime investigators carried out inquiries. The police helicopter was also reported to have been hovering overhead.
One police van was parked at the entrance to the garage's shop. However, it was still open to customers, as were the other fuel pumps.
A witness at the scene - which is off the A19 and A689 at Wolviston - said a scenes of crime van was also parked close to McDonald's restaurant.
"I got a shock when I saw all the police tape cordoning off the section of the forecourt," said the man, who did not wish to be named.
The Gazette contacted Cleveland Police but investigations were at such a premature stage that officers were unable to provide details at that time.
