A woman has been arrested on suspicion of wasting police time after an allegation of rape last month.
Cleveland Police have confirmed that they're no longer investigating an alleged rape.
On the third of March it was reported that a woman had been forced into a car with her toddler at Redcar seafront.
She told police she was taken to Yearby where she was raped before being forced out of the car on Kirkleatham Lane almost six hours later.
Almost a week later police said the circumstances surrounding the attack weren't as first reported.
Yesterday a woman in her early thirties was arrested and remains in custody.
A man has been charged with driving offences after an 11-year-old boy was injured in Dormanstown.
He suffered a broken shoulder, broken arm and facial injuries last November.
Now a 36-year-old man has been charged with careless driving and driving with a child who was not wearing a seatbelt.
He was also charged with failing to stop and failing to report the incident.
The boy was taken to James Cook Hospital and was discharged later on.
Marske Medical Centre is set to close in June.
Health chiefs say they can't find anyone to take over after the last medical company to run it went into administration.
A contract with South Tees Medical meant the GP and nursing services could run until May this year.
But a lack of interested companies means it’ll close on the 30th of June. Patients will get a letter sometime next week explaining how they can register with other nearby practices.
It's been revealed that last year's Festival of Thrift event at Kirkleatham made a profit of over five hundred thousand pounds.
And more than 35 thousand people visited the event over the course of the two days.
Visitors attended from across North Yorkshire and beyond with some people staying in the area overnight.
Plans are already underway for this year's event which is set to take place in September.
