Cleveland Police are asking residents to look out for their elderly neighbours after a man was charged £200 for having his lawn mown.

A man in his 80s was taken to his local bank by a gardener who asked for £200 for the job.

Luckily the man couldn't remember his PIN number.

He told staff at the bank what he wanted the money for and they raised an alarm to police.

Details have been passed on to Trading Standards.

Police are reminding to people to be wary of work being carried out at an elderly person’s home.

 

A Redcar Councillor has raised over £300 so far to fund a dog park in memory of Baby and Scamp, two dogs victim to animal cruelty.

Coatham Ward Councillor Carl Quartermain is aiming to raise 50 thousand pounds for the dog play area.

It comes after two recent cases of animal abuse that made national headlines - Baby who was filmed being kicked, punched and thrown downstairs by Andrew and Daniel Frankish, and more recently Scamp who was found buried alive in Kirkleatham woods last October.

Both dogs had to be put down to end their suffering.

In light of the abuse, Carl says he is trying to create a place where people can go to play with, remember and celebrate our canine friends.

He is proposing the park be built near Redcar seafront along with a dog friendly café and exercise equipment.

 

Work is now under way to clean up Redcar and Cleveland as part of the Great British Spring Clean.

The council are looking for volunteers to help out with more than 50 litter picks across the area.

The national campaign takes place over this weekend with the aim of clearing up litter.

Events will be taking in place right across the borough, including Skinningrove, Guisborough and Eston.

The clean up builds on Redcar and Cleveland Council's "Love It" campaign, which focuses on improving the environment and building pride in communities.

For anyone who wants to help out, details of the litter pick can be found on the council's website.
