Zetland FM Local News - 29th November 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Tuesday 29th November 2016.
A man has been arrested after a car incident in Dormanstown left a young boy with serious injuries.
The man was arrested on Sunday and released on bail yesterday.
An investigation into the incident is currently taking place.
Half a dozen police cars attended the scene near Broadway East and the 11-year-old boy was taken to James Cook Hospital by ambulance.
He suffered facial injuries, a broken shoulder and a broken arm.
Anyone with information about the incident can contact police on the non emergency number 101.
Up to 100 Teesside jobs are under threat due to new council plans to save almost £26 million.
Redcar & Cleveland Council has also announced a 4% rise in council tax to help to pay for adult social care.
As well as turning off some street lights in non-residential areas.
The spending cuts are expected to save millions of pounds over the next three years.
The council says that the plans are not an “ideal situation” and that they were left with no other option because of government spending cuts.
A full council meeting will take place later this week to discuss the plans.
The shelters on Redcar seafront have once again been vandalised.
Glass panes in one of the shelters were found smashed at the weekend with glass all over the floor.
The vandalism has been reported to the police.
Local Councillor Neil Baldwin has called the new damage “disheartening” and “costly”.
The new vandalism comes after arson attacks on the shelters during summer.
The fire-damaged shelter which was part of the £30 million seafront revamp was fixed a few months ago.
