Zetland FM Local News - 26th April 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Tuesday 26th April
Wintery conditions have returned to our area overnight, and are set to continue through the rest of today.
Despite the fact that it's nearly May, last night we saw accumulations of snow in higher parts of the North Yorkshire moors, and temperatures across many parts of Redcar and Cleveland last night dropped below freezing.
The cold snap saw a yellow warning for snow and ice issued by the Met Office for the entire United Kingdom overnight, and has lead to drivers this morning being advised to take care as there are icy patches on a number of routes in our area.
This morning, gales are forecast and the wintry showers will continue, sometimes becoming heavy in places.
Police are appealing for the driver of a silver vehicle to come forward after a collision involving a six-year-old girl on Parliament Road in Middlesbrough.
The incident occurred on Friday between 6:30 and 7:00pm.
The driver, who is described as an Asian male, initially stopped to see if the girl was ok but then left the scene without leaving his details.
The girl sustained bruising to her left ankle but was otherwise uninjured.
Anyone with information regarding the collision or anyone who witnessed it is asked to contact PC Amanda Stokes from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.
Officers are appealing to anyone in the Hemlington and Coulby Newham areas who may have found discarded property recently to contact them.
Police suspect that property, including a camcorder and a bag containing CD’s, may have been discarded in the area following two reported burglaries and three alleged thefts from vehicles earlier this month.
Police have charged a 33-year-old man with burglary, four counts of theft from motor vehicles, two counts of attempted thefts from motor vehicles and failing to surrender for police bail. He is due to appear at Teesside Crown Court on 10th May.
Anyone who may have found any of the discarded property in the area, or has any further information, is asked to contact PC Lauren Somerville on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
