...and Saltburn has been named one of the best places to live in the country.

Police are appealing for information after a bicycle and car collision at an Eston junction.

It took place on Thursday at around nine in the morning at the junction of Eston High Street and Birchington Avenue in Grangetown.

The driver of the red Citroen did stop but left before police arrived.

Although the cyclist suffered only minor injuries, police would like the driver to come forward. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Mark Pearson on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Police are on the lookout this week for both drivers and passengers not wearing seatbelts in cars.

It is part of a national week-long seatbelt campaign organised by the European traffic police network.

And under new legislation, this also includes making sure vehicles have suitable restraints for children.

They must use appropriate restraints until they either reach 135 centimetres tall or 12 years old.

And the driver is responsible for all passengers under the age of 14 wearing seatbelts or restraints.

Passengers over 14 are responsible for themselves and could face prosecution if caught.

 

Saltburn has been named one of the best places to live in the country.

The town recently landed a place in The Sunday Times Best Places to Live list.

They called it a "grand slice of posh Victorian seaside".

The pier, transport links, schools and even Seaview Restaurant were picked out as some of the reasons.

They use a wide range of factors to compile their list, including jobs, exam results, community spirit and local shops.

We asked some of Saltburn's residents what they love most about their home town.
