A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Tuesday 10th May 2016.
Police are reminding motorists to remove expensive items from vehicles and to ensure they are secure following a number of thefts.
Officers from Saltburn, Marske and New Marske Neighbourhood Police Team have received a report of a theft from a vehicle left insecure and another involving the theft of a sat nav device. Both of these incidents occurred within the last few days in the Marske area.
Police are appealing to the public not to make things easy for the criminals out there, and to ensure vehicles are locked and valuables are not on display.
A local ex-RAF serviceman is setting himself a major challenge to raise funds for the local branch of the Royal British Legion.
Andy McLeod, who is a member of the Redcar Branch, is a keen cyclist and is planning to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal by cycling, unsupported from the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London to the Cenotaph at Coatham Road in Redcar in less than 24 hours.
His journey will begin at Midnight on Saturday 18th June, and as Big Ben strikes he will cycle out of London and head North with a Poppy Wreath on his back.
Andy is hoping that members of the public will support him along the route, which is approximately 283 miles.
Anyone interested in making a donation can do so at the Redcar Branch of the Royal British Legion on Coatham Road in Redcar.
There was disappointment for Guisborough Town in the final of the North Ridings Senior Cup against Middlesbrough last night.
The Priorymen were hoping to get their hands on the silverware in front of a home crowd of 440 at the King George the Fifth ground last night.
However, despite an action packed match, goals from Boro's Alex Pattison after 38 minutes, and Arnel Jakupovic in the 45th, meant a 2-0 lead for the Teessiders at half time.
Guisborough's hopes remained alive when Peter Bulmer put the ball in the net for the Priorymen in the 61st minute, but hopes of an equaliser were dashed when Boro's Arnel Jakupovic scored his second goal of the night 8 minutes later to make the final score Guisborough Town 1, Middlesbrough 3.
Manager of Middlesbrough FC Under 21's Paul Jenkins told Zetland FM he was pleased with the result.
Meanwhile Guisborough manager Steve Dowling told Zetland FM he was pleased with his players.
