The suspected stolen motorcycle was reported stolen from the Carlin How and District Club on Brotton Road in Carlin How at around 5pm and was later recovered.

Adventurous students from Teesside University are taking on a mammoth challenge for The Golden Jubilee spinal cord injuries centre at The James Cook University Hospital.
The enthusiastic group of second year physiotherapy students - who have been on a 10-week work placement at the centre at the Middlesbrough hospital - were so inspired by the caring and inspirational staff and the patients and their journeys they wanted to do something to help.
The intrepid students, aged between 20 and 35, are tackling the National Three Peaks Challenge - climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon - in 24 hours on the 24th and 25th of May.
They are aiming to raise £3,000 to buy a Sara Stedy - which is an enhanced standing aid used to assist patient transfers - as well as other medical equipment which will benefit patients on the unit.
The Sara Stedy encourages more mobile patients to stand up independently improving strength in their legs and at the same time reducing the physical demand on physiotherapists.
As well as raising money, the team are hoping their efforts will inspire future students to carry on fundraising for the centre and to pass down the baton to the next year 2 students on placement.
It was bad news for Redcar Athletic in their home match against Stockton Town on Monday evening.
Redcar Athletic took the lead in 42nd minute in a very entertaining 1st half when LIAM WOOD fired in from close range. However, the lead only lasted 2 minutes when the ball deflected straight to Stockton's KALLUM HANNAH in the Redcar Athletic penalty area who blasted his shot into the far left hand corner of the net.
Stockton Town then took the lead in the 58th minute when KALLUM HANNAH picked up the ball 20 yards from goal on the right and picked his spot with a neat finish just inside the left hand post. A further goal on 61 minutes for Stockton Town from SONNI COLEMAN sealed the victory for the Stocktonians.
The final score Redcar Athletic 1, Stockton Town 3.
