Three police constables have been praised for their valiant efforts to save a woman from drowning off the coast of Saltburn.
PC’s Leigh Stevens, Kelly Daniel and Malcolm Philpott were called after a woman walked into the bitter cold sea in a desperate attempt to take her own life.
All three officers waded deep into the water to rescue her, but were pushed back by the strong tide and conditions.
RNLI volunteers arrived and jumped from the lifeboat to save the woman – who was up to her neck in water - and the three police constables helped to take her back to shore.
The brave efforts of PC’s Stevens, Daniel and Philpott during the incident on 24th March have been praised by Chief Constable Iain Spittal.
The officers, who work on the emergency response team in Redcar, have also been nominated for an official Chief Constable’s Commendation.
A public meeting about vandalism on Eston Hills called by Anna Turley has now changed locations.
She's inviting local residents, community groups and Cleveland Fire Brigade to start making a plan to prevent the problem.
Firefighters are being regularly called out to tackle fires started by arsonists and damage is also being caused by unauthorised vehicles.
It will now be held tomorrow at half five at Birkdale Drive Community Centre in Eston.
There's a reminder there’ll be no trains between Saltburn and Middlesbrough tomorrow.
Northern Rail guards and driver are staging another 24-hour strike.
They began striking after the future of the guards' jobs became uncertain and more than a month on there has been no progress from company bosses.
The strike means there will be no trains between Saltburn and Middlesbrough for the entire day.
And there will be limited services between Middlesbrough and Darlington.
Plans have been submitted to build a B&M store in South Bank which could create almost 40 new jobs.
The three million pound investment would see a store, adjoining garden centre and 114 car parking spaces.
A plan has been submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council and states it's been designed specifically for B&M.
It's set to bring in 40 new jobs as well as others during construction.
