Zetland FM Local News - 30th January 2017
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Monday 30th January 2017.
Volunteers from the Redcar lifeboat were called in to action at the weekend.
On Saturday afternoon crews responded to a report of fishing boat in difficulties at Saltburn.
Redcar's Atlantic 85 was launched to investigate shortly after 5pm.
However the fishing boat was found to be safe and in no need for assistance.
Crews then returned to the lifeboat station at Redcar.
A local dog charity was forced to carry out a clean up at the weekend following a break in.
Maxi's Mates kennels at Dunsdale were broken into by intruders overnight on Saturday into Sunday.
The intruders smashed a large pane of glass in a door close to an area where dogs are kept, leaving glass spread on the floor inside.
It is unknown if any items were stolen from the charity, however many people took to social media to condemn the actions, which they say are likely to have caused distress to dogs on the premises.
Anyone with any information about the incident should contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
Young people from our area with a passion to make a difference are being sought to become Redcar and Cleveland's next member of the UK Youth Parliament.
Members of the Youth Parliament represent the views of young people in their constituency and make sure that their views are represented both locally and nationally.
Once elected Members of the Youth Parliament meet with MPs and local councillors, organise events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates and ensure the views of young people are listened to by decision makers.
