105FM :: Local Radio for Redcar & Cleveland

A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Friday 18th November 2016.

A man has admitted to murdering Lee Pettite in Eston earlier this year.

Two other men have denied the murder and are now on trial which is expected to last three weeks.

However, Christopher Stubbs has already pleaded guilty and will be sentenced once the trial is over.

Lee Pettite died in hospital after suffering serious chest injuries in an incident in Bankfields.

He was treated by air ambulance crews and given a blood transfusion at the scene but later died from his injuries at James Cook University Hospital.


Cleveland Fire Brigade is urging young drivers to sign a promise pledge to help them stay safe on the roads.

The pledge has six promises - to be slow, sober, secure, silent, sharp and sustainable.

It includes sticking to the speed limit, never drinking and driving, wearing seatbelts and not using a mobile phone.

Drivers signing up will also commit to regular eye tests and using alternative transport whenever possible.

It comes as part of Road Safety Week which begins on Monday. Young drivers can sign the pledge at Middlesbrough College.


The council is warning residents that the green waste disposal service is stopping over winter. 

Anyone who wants green waste collecting should put their bins out on their next collection day starting next week.

This is when the last pick-ups will begin.

The council is asking people to check their collection date using their address on their website.

And anyone who needs to get rid of green waste after the service has ended can do so at Dunsdale Household Waste Recycling Centre.

The centre will be open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.


A missing great dane who volunteers searched round the clock for has finally been reunited with his owners.

Rescue dog Max slipped from his lead while being taken for a walk on Wednesday.

He was found yesterday evening in the corner of a garden on Thames Road in Redcar.

And after a lot of leg work Max is now safe and sound at home.

TJ from TJ Danes Rescue charity in Redcar came into the Zetland FM studio yesterday to appeal for volunteers to help with the search.

Once Max was found, TJ spoke to Zetland FM to thank everyone for their support.
