Police are appealing for witnesses after a serious crash closed a main road in our area at the weekend.

Officers from Cleveland and Durham Road Policing Unit are asking the public for information about the crash on the A171 at Charlton’s on Saturday.

The collision happened at around 10.45am on Saturday morning  close to the Fox and Hounds pub at Slapewath, and the road was closed in both directions for more than five hours.

In particular, police are seeking information about the driving of a light blue VW Passat at the time of the collision or beforehand.

The vehicle will have been travelling west, towards Guisborough on the A171.

The road closure caused major travel disruption in Skelton, Guisborough and Boosbeck area as drivers were diverted around the scene of the accident.

 

Redcar RNLI were called into operation yesterday morning to assist a broken down fishing boat in the sea off Saltburn.

Crews from Redcar had just refuelled and recarriaged the Atlantic 85 lifeboat following their Sunday morning training session when were tasked by the Humber Coastguard at just after 11am to assist the fishing boat, which had broken down with engine failure off Huntcliff Point.

The crew of the fishing boat, with three people on board, had dropped their anchor as soon as the engine failed and raised the alarm with the coastguard on VHF channel 16.

The Redcar lifeboat arrived at the scene within ten minutes, and towed the vessel back to the slipway at Saltburn.

The crew of the fishing boat were then provided with safety advice, it is not believed that there were any injuries.

 

Cleveland Police have thanked the public following an appeal to identify two men following a fatal collision between an elderly man and a motorbike in Eston.

Officers have confirmed that as a result of the appeal, in which they released stills from CCTV footage taken in the area, they have now identified two men who may be able to assist with their enquiries into the collision which happened on Sunday 2nd April.

85-year-old John Truscott passed away ten days later following the collision with a motorbike on Meadowgate in Eston.

Police have thanked those who shared the appeal and contacted police with information.
