Zetland FM Local News - 8th March 2017
A man has been arrested on suspicion of the rape that took place on Friday;
South Bank and North Ormesby walk-in centres are set to close next month;
...and the Inspiring Women Awards are back this year to recognise outstanding women across Redcar & Cleveland.
A man has been arrested and then released without charge after a woman was raped on Friday.
The 31-year-old man from the area was arrested yesterday afternoon.
He was released later in the day but police are still carrying out enquiries.
At around midday on Friday two men forced a woman and her toddler into the back of a car on the slipway near the boating lake.
The car took off down Turner Street and eventually to Yearby where she was raped.
The victim and her child were then forced out of the vehicle on Kirkleatham Lane between 5:30 and 6:30 in the evening.
Police have assured us that the child wasn't harmed.
Anyone with any information or who may have captured CCTV footage is asked to contact police on non-emergency number 101.
South Bank and North Ormesby walk-in centres are set to close next month.
Instead a new service will come into place which includes four centres with new longer-extended hours.
Eston Grange and Resolution Health Centre will close on the first of April.
Instead, patients are advised to call 111.
Anyone wanting to see a doctor out-of-hours should call their GP surgery to make an appointment at an extended hours centre.
These will be based at Redcar Primary Care Hospital, East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton, North Ormesby Health Village and the One Life Centre in Linthorpe.
The Inspiring Women Awards are back this year to recognise outstanding women across Redcar & Cleveland.
The event takes place this Friday in the Bellamy Pavillion at Kirkleatham Museum.
The awards were set up last year by Anna Turley in memory of late MP Mo Mowlam.
It will once again be hosted by Zetland FM’s very own Julie Donaldson.
