A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Saturday 22nd October 2016.
Two men who were arrested by police yesterday on suspicion of cruelty following the discovery of a severely injured dog in Kirkleatham woods on Wednesday have been bailed pending further enquiries.
The men, aged 60 and 59, were arrested yesterday afternoon and were interviewed by officers from the RSPCA.
Police are also appealing for information after two sheep were attacked and killed on Wilton Lane, between Bank Top Farm and Court Green Farm, in Redcar.
It is believed the incident occurred overnight on Tuesday 18th October into Wednesday 19th October.
A ram and a lamb were both attacked with a blunt instrument, which may have been a piece of wood, leaving them with head injuries which killed them both.
MP for Redcar Anna Turley gave Zetland FM her reaction to the two incidents.
Police are appealing for information after an alleged armed robbery occurred at the One Stop Shop in The Viewly Centre in Hemlington.
The alleged incident occurred last Sunday at around 10:45pm when two men entered the store and threatened a member of staff with a knife and demanded cash.
One of the men was wearing a balaclava and both men left the shop with £300 cash from the till.
Two men aged 26 and 36 have been charged with robbery, and have been remanded in custody awaiting a court appearance next month.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Zoe Parkinson on the 101 non-emergency number.
The sound of a wartime air raid siren was heard in Redcar yesterday evening, as an event took place to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the bombing of the Zetland Club.
At 9 o'clock last night, over a hundred people, including the mayor and local dignitaries, gathered on the site of the club, which is now a memorial garden, to remember the fifteen local people who died when German bombs landed on the building on the night of October the 21st 1941.
Fifteen commemorative crosses were laid at the memorial flag at the site, as the names of those who died were read out.
Barry Hunt, the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, told Zetland FM that it was a touching tribute.
