15.12.22- Stolen Vehicles in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Repairs at Mitchell Arts Centre

Written by on 16 December 2022

A man has been charged after two cars were stolen whilst they were defrosting in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Staffordshire Police were called to an address near Newchapel Road earlier this week. The owner of a Renault Clio left their car to defrost until it was stolen.

A short time later, Police received a similar report near Park Avenue. A Dacia Sandero had been left unattended whilst defrosting and was stolen.

Shortly after the Dacia was found abandoned nearby.

Daniel David Boulton, aged 31, of no-fixed-address, was arrested and charged with aggravated vehicle taking and vehicle damage, using a motor vehicle on a road without third party insurance, driving a motor vehicle which had been taken without the owner’s consent, driving a motor vehicle dangerously and driving whilst disqualified.



A popular city centre theatre has been able to fix its leaky roof thanks to a £38,000 cash boost from Stoke-on-Trent City Council.

Part of the roof at the Mitchell Arts Centre, in Hanley, had fallen into disrepair in recent years causing water to drip into the dressing rooms and the dance studio.

But now the Broad Street venue has been able to carry out the critical repairs, ensuring it remains fit for purpose and ready to welcome visitors and community groups in 2023 and beyond.

Councillor Lorraine Beardmore, cabinet member for culture, leisure and public health, said: “I am delighted that the Mitchell Arts Centre has been able to make some much-needed repairs to the building with support from Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s Community Investment Fund.

The Mitchell Arts Centre welcomes more than 70,000 visitors and over 50 groups, including amateur dramatics groups and dance schools, every year.

It also hosts children’s theatre, workshops, training days, comedy nights and live screenings.  The venue also has a café facility which is a great community space
