Redcar's MP Anna Turley has said that Tory MP's who scuppered her parliamentary bill for Baby's Law have 'undermined democracy'.

Anna queued overnight in order to secure a parliamentary slot to debate the bill, however her efforts were scuppered on Friday by Tory MPs who “shouted to object” when she tried to raise her Private Members Bill to debate new legislation.

In a statement issued by her office, Anna said that three Conservative MPs “who regularly thwart backbench bills deliberately talked out an earlier bill in order to use up parliamentary time”.

Anna said she was disgusted at the actions of the MPs who have undermined democracy to block a bill they didn’t want to progress.

She said that this isn’t the end of her battle to get Baby’s Law on the statute book, she will be calling it back for another attempt next month and will use every available opportunity in parliament to secure a change in the law.”

 

Ambitious plans have been approved to invest half a million pounds to develop 45 beach huts along Saltburn seafront.

The approval comes despite reservations about the impact the huts may have on visitors to the town.

Leisure company Marshalls Beach and Leisure Huts are proposing to hire out the colourful huts on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

The specially designed units, which will be situated at the eastern end of the lower promenade, will be 3m wide by 2.6m deep and three simple structures have been in place as part of the public consultation into the scheme.

 

A superb goalkeeping display by Jordan Nixon rescued what could be a vital point for Guisborough Town against Ryhope at the King George the Fifth ground on Saturday.

Nixon, who is rapidly earning a reputation for himself as one of the best keepers in the Northern League – pulled off a string of six or seven stunning saves to keep Guisborough in the game at 1-2 down as stoppage time approached.

And in the fourth minute of time added on Guisborough grabbed a great equaliser when young sub Tom Bligh put over a super cross and there was defender Matty Lovatt to head home to earn his side a draw.

The hard-earned point might not be enough in the final scheme of things but it keeps alive the Guisborough’s faint hopes of avoiding the drop.
