Zetland FM Local News - 24th January 2017
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Tuesday 24th January 2017.
A new Parliamentary report was released yesterday in a bid to revitalise the UK’s steel industry after the closure of SSI.
Melissa Major reports:
Cleveland Police are rolling out their property marking events after the last two were a major success.
Residents of Redcar & Cleveland can get a free etching to help keep anything from bicycles to mobile phones out of the hands of criminals.
The etchings not only reunite owners with their property, but also help provide evidence to convict the thief.
And the marking could be enough to deter a thief simply due to the permanent appearance.
The next event takes place this Sunday between 1 and 3 at East Coast Cycles in Redcar.
And the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Barry Hunt, is recording a single to help raise money for charity.
Councillor Hunt is recording 'Hurry Home', a 1980s hit written by Stockton-based songwriter Steve Thompson.
The money raised will go to the Mayor's chosen charities - Redcar's Coatham House which provides shelter for young people in need, and Earthbeat, a theatre group for adults with learning disabilities.
The song will be released by Hartlepool record label, Vainglorious, and is being recorded at a studio at Teesside University for free.
Hurry Home will be available to buy next month on both download and CD.
