Zetland FM Local News - 24th November 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Thursday 24th November 2016.
Local MP's have reacted with disappointment to yesterday's Autumn statement by the Chancellor.
The new Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, made the statement to the House of Commons yesterday afternoon, and revealed the governments spending plans for the coming years.
Anna Turley, MP for Redcar, said that after a tough six years of austerity and job losses, there wasn’t enough in yesterday's statement to give Teesside’s economy the boost it needs.
And Tom Blenkinsop, the MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, said that public finances face a new crisis and working people will feel the hurt.
He said that yesterdays forecast and statement don’t seem to be good news for anyone.
The remains of 19 Anglo-Saxons found in an archaeological dig in Redcar are going to be laid to rest once again.
A service will be held on Saturday at St Cuthbert's Church to re-bury the men, women and children whose remains were found.
They were discovered in 2013 during building work at Kirkleatham Hall School.
They are believed to be part of a “community cemetery” and are evidence of an Anglo-Saxon settlement in Kirkleatham.
They will be laid to rest once again on Saturday just 100 metres away from their original burial site.
The burial will be marked by a stone saying: “Here lie the remains of 19 Anglo-Saxon Christians reburied 2016.”
The details of a mysterious film crew in Redcar have now been revealed to be a film adaptation of stage play 'Making Noise Quietly'.
The filming took place in September in a house on Granville Terrace.
A photo posted to Facebook of the film crews and a yellow Vauxhall Cavalier quickly sparked interest.
The film's head of production has now confirmed that the Redcar shoot was for a film adaptation of Making Noise Quietly.
The play by Guisborough-born Robert Holman has several stories, all about the effects of war on ordinary lives.
And the Redcar scenes are for a storyline about a mother coming to terms with the loss of her son in the Falklands War.
But local movie-goers will have to wait as details of the film's release have yet to be confirmed.
