A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Saturday 16th April:

Suspected cocaine and cannabis with an estimated street value of £70,000 has been recovered from a vehicle on the A19.

Officers stopped a vehicle at Crathorne early on Friday and arrested a 30 year old woman on suspicion of possession of class A and B drugs with intent to supply. She remains in custody.

Detective Inspector Stephen Kappel said he was pleased with the results of yesterday as it removed drugs that would have caused harm to the Cleveland area and stops them from being sold on the streets.

Anyone with information regarding drugs activity in their area is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101, or the Community Drugs Enforcement Team confidentially on 0800 929 702.

A Teesside company who already operate the 'Play Factory' soft play centres in Skelton and Thornaby, could be jumping for joy if plans submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council for a new trampoline park get the go ahead.

The proposed site on Millholme Avenue on the Skelton Industrial Estate, was the home of SK Chilled Foods until 2006 and has been empty ever since.

If converted, the building would house 50 trampolines and become the second Trampoline Park on Teesside. Endeavour Leisure say that it will create 3 full time and 17 part time jobs.

You have until May 10th to submit comments or concerns to the Council over the plans.
