A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Wednesday 21st September 2016
A driver has had a lucky escape after his car left the road at a notorious blackspot near Skelton.
Police were called to the scene on Sunday afternoon after the red Mazda flipped over and landed on its roof before coming to rest in a field on the A173 between Guisborough and Skelton.
The driver was able to extricate himself out of the wreckage, and was found standing at the side of the road by a passing ambulance crew.
The driver did not suffer any injuries and it is not believed that anyone else was in the vehicle.
Volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were in action at the weekend.
The team were called to Carlton Bank to assist a competitor in a mountain bike event who had come off his bike and sustained leg injuries.
The Team were called directly by the event paramedics to evacuate the 39-year-old Derbyshire man about a kilometre to the nearest road and a waiting ambulance.
Team members used a mountain rescue stretcher and Landrover ambulance to carry out the evacuation.
The incident lasted about an hour and involved 15 team members.
Artists from around the area are heading to Redcar next month to showcase their work at an art fair.
The event is being hosted at Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart in the council chamber on Saturday 1 October and Sunday 2 October.
Organised by local artist Philip Boville, the event will display artwork and artistic craftwork, glass and pottery from artists across the North East.
Members of the public who would like to have a go at drawing something of their own will be given the opportunity and artists will be there to give advice.
The fair will be free to enter and will be open from 10.30am until 4pm.
