A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Wednesday 9th November 2016.
Police are appealing for information after a young man indecently exposed himself to a woman in a Redcar park.
The incident occurred yesterday at around 10:30am in Locke Park.
The 65-year-old victim was heading towards the park's exit near Kirkleatham Street when a man shouted towards her and then exposed himself.
The suspect is described as a white male, around 5 ft tall, of slim build and aged between 14 and 16-years-old.
He was wearing a grey jacket and black coloured bottoms.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Carolann Warnock by calling 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Redcar MP Anna Turley has voiced her concerns about animal cruelty punishments in Parliament.
This comes after a number of cruelty cases in Redcar over the past few months.
The lead case in the debate was the Frankish brothers who kicked, stamped on and threw their pet bulldog down the stairs and recorded the acts on film.
They received a suspended sentence, a six months tagged curfew and were ordered to pay £300 in costs.
In another recent case, a dog was buried alive in Kirkleatham Woods with a nail through its head.
Anna called on the Government to support her bill to increase prison sentencing for animal cruelty from six months to five years.
A follow up reading for the bill is scheduled for February.
Marks & Spencer still want to bring a food hall to Guisborough despite yesterday's announcement that around 60 stores will close.
The plans for a Guisborough store have been questioned after the shop revealed the closures.
However M&S has since confirmed that is it still planning to open at the new Cleveland Gate development.
The company says that it is trying to cut back on clothing and boost its food chain.
It is not currently known which Marks & Spencer stores will be affected however.
