An action group has been formed to try and combat damage to Eston Hills.
It comes after a public meeting was held by Anna Turley in April to start thinking of ways to prevent the problem.
Suggestions included having more police motorbikes on the hills, more gates restricting and having a special area for people to ride off-road vehicles.
And now a group has been formed which includes members of the public as well as the council, police, fire rescue and wildlife groups.
Together they will come up with a plan to try and combat the fires, abandoned vehicles and off-roading that is damaging the hills.
An elderly woman who was trapped in her overturned car in Redcar suffered head and chest injuries.
The Coast Road was closed for several hours while an ambulance crew assisted her and took her to James Cook Hospital.
Now it's been released that she suffered minor head injuries and bruising to her chest.
Her car flipped over when her car hit a parked vehicle on Tuesday evening.
No other passengers are believed to have been involved.
And our community has rallied around to help restore Saltburn Valley Gardens after vandals caused seven thousand pounds worth of damage.
They destroyed the toilets and damaged outbuildings at the Woodland Centre over the weekend forcing the centre to close.
But members of the public have raised more than one thousand pounds so far.
And local plumbers and electricians offered the services for free to try and get the centre back up and running again.
Others have turned up at the site to lend a hand in cleaning up.
Three teenagers were arrested in connection with the vandalism but have since been released pending further enquiries.
