POLICE in the region have said they have closed down one of the world's biggest illegal music file sharing websites.
The site is understood to have been operating from a flat in Middlesbrough.
Up to 180,000 people were members of the private website.
They paid to upload and download music, some of it not yet released by record companies.
The home of a 24-year-old IT worker was raided in Grange Road, Middlesbrough, was raided in a low-key operation this morning.
At the same time his father's home and his employer, a large multi-national company, were also raided.
The website's server, which was based in Amsterdam, was also closed down by Dutch police.
The 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and infringement of copyright law.
Detective Sergeant Tony Keogh, who led this morning's operation, said the three-month investigation had involved Interpol, the Dutch authorities and the British Phonographic Industry.
He said: "This is an infringement of copyright law that in financial terms causes immeasurable lost to record companies.
"We have been working closely with Interpol and our Dutch colleagues in Amsterdam where the website server is based to ensure that it too was secured at the time of arrest."
