The RSPCA is appealing for information after a dog was found buried alive with a nail hammered into its head in Kirkleatham Woods yesterday.
The small dog, believed to have been a terrier crossbreed, was found by walkers in the woods at around midday.
The walkers heard a whimpering from nearby and notified a nearby workman who brought a spade to see what was in the ground.
To everyone's horror he uncovered the dog who was still alive and had a nail sticking out from between his eyes.
The couple called the police before rushing the dog to a nearby vets, who were left with no choice but to put the dog to sleep to end his suffering.
Ambitious plans to open luxury beach huts on Saltburn seafront seem to be forging ahead.
A planning application has now been submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council for 50 beach huts.

The huts will be made available on a daily hire basis on a “first come first served” basis.
More than 250 people are on a waiting list to bag one Saltburn's current sea front chalets but the average wait is ten years or more.
