Welcome to the fifth edition of Middlesbrough locals and their glassy, gormless faces in local paper the Evening Gazette. The Gazette Face marches on.

Hats off to Rob Nichols, editor of seminal Middlesbrough F.C. fanzine ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ and provider of this specially commissioned Gazette Face. The nether regions managed to grab a few words with a Gazette-Faced Rob, and he revealed that he thought of this blog as soon as he heard a Gazette photographer was on the way. Incredible scenes.

Teesside dad discovers his number on vice girl list

Middlesbrough Evening Gazette, 2 October 2009 (story):

A TEESSIDE dad was shocked to find his phone number had been posted as that of a vice girl on an international website advertising prostitutes. […]

The site has raised fears that prostitution is as prevalent as ever on Teesside, but has moved from the street into cyberspace. A search for Middlesbrough produced 49 results, with a further 36 entries posted under Teesside.

We rang the numbers listed to ask if the local women knew that their personal details had been posted on the website, which is based in California.

But while ringing Middlesbrough-listed “Jessica” – described as a tall blonde-haired lady, great looking, nice curvy figure and a great smile – we came across unsuspecting Hemlington resident Lawrence Tibbett.

It is a sad indictment on the current state of the regional media that our news reporters are reduced to calling prostitutes while on the job.

He said: “I’m flabbergasted to tell you the truth.

“I think it’s diabolical. It could be a young child on the other end of the phone. You don’t know what these guys who ring up might say.

“I have had this number for seven or eight years. I think it’s ridiculous – it’s obviously a mistake.

“You are the first person to ring me so this Jessica can’t be very popular.”
