A woman arrested on suspicion of wasting police time in connection with the Redcar rape has been released pending further enquiries.
Last week Cleveland Police updated that they were no longer investigating an alleged rape and had arrested a woman in her early thirties.
She alleged she was taken from Redcar seafront to Yearby and was raped before being forced out of the car on Kirkleatham Lane almost six hours later.
Police now say that the circumstances surrounding the attack weren't as first reported.
Police are appealing for information after a car was stolen in New Marske.
The burglary happened in the early hours of yesterday morning at a house on Pontac Road.
A white Ford Kuga with a 66 registration plate was stolen along with jewellery.
A gold band ring with a sunken diamond and smaller diamonds on either side was taken and holds sentimental value to the victim.
Police believe a man who was jogging in the area might be able to assist them with their investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to get in touch with Detective Constable Paul Daniel on the non-emergency number 101.
A well-known wildlife artist has donated a selection of work to his cousin - the mayor of Redcar & Cleveland - to be sold for charity.
Alan M. Hunt, originally from Dormanstown, has sold his work around the world and been awarded honours for his dedication to his craft.
Now he's given a selection of both prints and original paintings to the Mayor, Councillor Barry Hunt.
They'll be sold in order to raise money for Coatham House in Redcar which helps young homeless people and Earthbeat, a theatre group for adults with learning difficulties in Saltburn.
Collectors are invited to come along to Kirkleatham Museum to see what's on offer and make a bid.
