A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Saturday 7th May 2016.



Police have released a CCTV image of three males they want to speak to in connection with two burglaries.

Officers believe that the three males may be able to assist with their enquiries into two burglaries in which jewellery was stolen. One burglary was reported at a property on Croft Avenue on Tuesday 26th April and, in a second burglary on Thornfield Road in Middlesbrough on Thursday, those responsible made off empty handed.

Jewellery was also stolen in four other recently reported burglaries, although these are not believed to be linked to the other two incidents.

Police would appeal to anyone who has been offered jewellery for sale to contact them.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the males is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Louise Sprowson on the non-emergency number 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

You can view the CCTV images, along with photos of the stolen jewellery, on the Zetland FM Facebook page.


South Bank Primary School is set to receive a makeover this coming Monday, thanks to Tesco Community Group and superstore B&Q.

The school’s temporary base in Teesville on Learning Lane will be spruced up as a host of volunteers, managers and staff from the two stores will be coming to paint, weed, dig and plant in the outdoor areas.

Fruit and vegetables will also be planted, and a number of paint jobs, including the painting of a pirate ship, will help give the school a bright and cheerful exterior.

Some of the pupils from the school have volunteered to take responsibility of the maintenance of the plants, fruits and vegetables once the makeover is complete.  

Helen Hall, the Headteacher at South Bank Primary School, thanked everyone involved and said it is fantastic to see the community coming together to improve the school’s environment.


The volunteers at Redcar RNLI are preparing to formally welcome their new inshore lifeboat today.

The naming ceremony will be held in the charity's lifeboat station when volunteer crew and their families will be joined by join RNLI supporters and colleagues from neighbouring lifeboat stations to celebrate the arrival of the new lifeboat and to formally accept the vessel into their care.

The D class lifeboat, called Eileen May Loach-Thomas, went into service at Redcar late last year and has already been called upon on ten occasions for incidents ranging from the rescue of stranded dogs to searches for missing people. The funding for Eileen May Loach-Thomas was made possible thanks to the bequest of Nick Thomas, a Shropshire engineer. The lifeboat is named after his first wife, whom he met during the war, and who died during the 1970s.

The ceremony will include a service of dedication conducted by Reverend Rachel Harrison from St Peter's Church and musical support will be provided by the Marske Fishermen's Choir.
