Zetland FM Local News - 3rd December 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Saturday 3rd December 2016.
Five people, including a seven-year-old girl, were taken to hospital following a head-on smash in Redcar.
Two people were arrested by police following the crash, which happened on the railway bridge on Kirkleatham Lane at ten past one yesterday afternoon.
The child and two pensioners, were in a white Citroen which collided with a gold BMW. A black Nissan Juke and a red BMW were also involved in the accident.
The Great North Air Ambulance was called to the scene and landed on the field of Coatham Primary School. However the casualties were taken to hospital by road ambulance.
None of the injuries are believed to be serious.
Police questioned two men, aged 25 and 43, who were both arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving. They were taken into custody yesterday afternoon.
Cleveland Police have issued an appeal for any witnesses who spotted the red and gold BMWs driving along the Trunk Road at around 1pm.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Dave Marlow on the non-emergency number call 101.
The local NHS has confirmed the £4 million redevelopment of a new primary care centre on the Guisborough Hospital site.
The former Priory ward building will be completely redeveloped as part of the plans, with the current building stripped to its shell and completely rebuilt to provide a modern, health care environment for local people.
Existing community and outpatient clinics will continue to be provided in the new-look centre, while additional space will be created for more services to be provided from the site in the future.
Liverton Mines will be getting a spruce up in time for Christmas as the ‘Redcar and Cleveland Love It’ campaign stops off in East Cleveland.
Taking place on Monday from 9am to 2pm, staff from the council’s Neighbourhood team and local community groups will be giving the village a deep clean as well as cleaning pavements and picking up litter.
The activities will focus on Graham Street and Downe Street, as well as surrounding side-streets, and it would be appreciated if residents on those streets could use off-street parking or move their cars for the duration of the deep clean so all the works can be done with minimal disruption.
Liverton Mines’ deep clean follows on from a successful deep clean on the non-pedestrianised section of Redcar High Street which was also part of the ‘Love It’ campaign. That deep clean, where council staff worked alongside the Friends of Redcar, saw gulleys and gutters cleaned, chewing gum removed from pavements and the area tidied up. The aim is to do the same in the East Cleveland village.
