Zetland FM Local News - 3rd May 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Tuesday 3rd May 2016.
A major road in our area was closed for several hours yesterday afternoon following a serious accident.
Emergency services were called to A171 near to the Cross Keys pub outside Guisborough just after 12.30 yesterday lunchtime following reports of a collision between a white Mercedes and a silver Vauxhall Corsa.
The 41-year-old male drive of the Corsa sustained multiple serious injuries in the accident. He was anaesthetised on scene by the Great North Air Ambulance Service's doctor-led trauma team. He was also given a blood transfusion.
He was then transferred to James Cook University Hospital by road, with the North East Ambulance Service, due to the proximity from the scene.
The driver of the Mercedes was not seriously injured but was shaken from the collision.
Police have launched an investigation into the circumstances of accident and witnesses are asked to contact police on 101.
A pair of police officers supporting the Tour de Yorkshire event got a surprise at the weekend when they tried to track down the owner of a lost mobile phone.
PCSO Mark Ballinger and PC Chris Swales, both based at Coulby Newham, found the phone in Middlesbrough’s Centre Square.
The phone began to ring and the officers answered the call in order to return the phone to its rightful owner. They were then shocked to discover that it belonged to Team Raleigh’s Morgan Kneisky, who is a three-time World Track Cycling Champion.
Upon returning the phone, the officers were presented with Morgan’s cycling jersey as a token of gratitude.
Marske United’s hopes of retaining the league title are over after they lost 2-nil at home to Guisborough Town yesterday.
Curtis Round gave the visiting Priorymen the lead with a stunning strike in the first half before Steven Snaith wrapped up the win late on.
The defeat for Marske coupled with Shildon’s 4-0 win at Bishop Auckland means that the Railwaymen are the new Northern League champions.
