105FM :: Local Radio for Redcar & Cleveland

A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Tuesday 8th November 2016.


A man has been arrested after a family was forced to flee their home when a firework was thrown through their living room window in Redcar.

The 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of arson in connection with the incident.

A second man, aged 30, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit arson.

It took place on Halloween night at a home on Kirkleatham Lane.

A man, woman and teenage boy had to leave their home after their living room window was smashed and a large firework was lit and thrown inside, starting a fire.

Cleveland Fire Brigade were called to the address and no one was injured as a result.

Both men have been released on bail pending further enquiries.


A firework has been thrown into a family car carrying a two-week-old baby in Redcar.

Two cars sped past the family's vehicle before throwing the rocket through the window of the car as it drove on Redcar Lane.

No one was injured and no police investigation has been launched.

The incident took place at around 5pm on Sunday, one day after Guy Fawkes night.

Cleveland Police say the two vehicles were reportedly “driving erratically”.

The cars are a black Vauxhall Astra and a silver Mitsubishi Shogun.

However, the police say that since the vehicle registrations weren't captured a lack of evidence would currently make an investigation difficult.


The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for snow in Redcar and Cleveland.

The incoming rain we are currently having is expected to soon turn to snow.

This will be mainly in the higher areas but heavier bursts could possibly bring the snow down to the lower grounds.

There are concerns that parts of eastern England could see snow over tonight and into tomorrow morning.

Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Stockton and Durham could also be affected.


A Guisborough school is hosting a memorial service in honour of two former pupils who lost their lives while serving in the army.

Two plaques will be placed at Laurence Jackson School as a permanent memorial for the two fallen soldiers.

Private John Turnbull was killed in 1977 in Belfast, aged 18, while Marine Chris Maddison was killed in 2003 in Iraq, aged 24.

The plagues were bought using donations from the council and the Guisborough branch of the Royal British Legion.

The service will take place on Friday at 8:15am.
