An elderly man remains in serious condition after he was hit by an off-road motorbike in Eston.

Police are appealing for information after the collision on Meadowgate at around 1:45pm on Sunday.

An 86-year-old pedestrian was taken to James Cook Hospital where he remains in serious condition.

Now Cleveland Police want to hear from any witnesses or anyone who may have captured the incident on private CCTV.

They are asked to get in touch on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Cleveland Police are encouraging people to surrender their knives or sharp objects without fear of prosecution.

It’s part of a national campaign to try and tackle knife crime.

It follows on from last year's successful campaign where 106 knives or sharp objects were handed in

The campaign begins today and ends next Monday.

Anyone with objects to surrender can put them in knife bins at police stations at Middlesbrough, Kirkleatham, Stockton or Hartlepool.

Once items are surrendered they will be safely disposed of. 

 

A row has broken out after volunteers had personal mementos removed from graves in a Marske churchyard.

The Friends of St Germain’s group volunteer to keep the historic churchyard in good condition.

But recently items left on graves by some of the volunteers have been removed.

A rule states such items are prohibited but the Friends are baffled as to why the rule is only being enforced now.

 

 

And Councillor Mike Findlay says that in his opinion, the rules are meant to apply to large graves and not for dicrete displays.
