A man has been arrested after he crashed into a tree and then made off in the car of a man who stopped to help.

Yesterday morning a black VW Golf left the road and crashed into a tree on Flatts Lane in Normanby.

A man stopped at the scene to try and help but was left in disbelief as a man in the smashed car drove off in his car.

The car was later found abandoned in the Nunthorpe area and a suspect was found shortly after.

He was taken to James Cook Hospital before being arrested on suspicion of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent and drink driving.

 

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 79–year-old woman had her handbag stolen in Guisborough.

The woman was approached from behind by a man who then stole her small black handbag and its contents.

She wasn't injured during the incident.

It happened at around 7pm on Sunday as the victim walked along Venables Road and into the alley that leads to Lime Road and Park Lane.

The suspect is described as wearing a black coloured puffa style jacket and bottoms.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Nicky Moore on non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Redcar MP Anna Turley has questioned the Health Minister David Mowat in the House of Commons yesterday about the strain NHS cuts are putting on health services in Teesside.

The Teesside area, which includes NHS services stretching from South Durham to Whitby, faces a deficit of £281 million by 2020.

Anna challenged the minister on the impact this funding pressure is having on already stretched services.
