Middlesbrough’s MP has voiced concern over a “shoddily-built” £75m mental health hospital.

Roseberry Park in Middlesbrough, which opened seven years ago, has suffered problems with its roof, plumbing, and fire safety system.

Andy McDonald, Labour MP for the town, says poor construction is to blame.

Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust said the safety of its patients and staff was its priority and major repairs were being carried out.

About 50 people have already been moved to a hospital in Hartlepool while work is carried out block by block.
