Police are appealing for information after an expensive motorbike was stolen in Marske.
It was taken sometime between May 25 and May 28.
Thieves broke into a house on Wheatlands Drive and took a helmet and leather biking suit as well as a Black Yamaha motorbike.
All the equipment is brand new and the motorbike was purchased less than a month ago.
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Lesley Simpson on 101.
Cleveland Police will be carrying out random alcohol and drugs tests on drivers.
It is part of a national summer campaign that will last until the end of the month.
Its aim is to raise awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence because it's one of the four main causes of fatal crashes.
Last year 90 people in the area tested positive for driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.
Anyone who suspects someone of drink or drug driving can report them to Cleveland Police on 101.
And a food bank could open in Redcar on the site of an old job recruitment centre.
The unit on Queen Street was originally a branch of Lloyds Bank before it was used to help people find work.
Now local charity Footprints in the Community has submitted a planning application to the council to transform the space.
If it goes through it could create eight full-time jobs and customers would pay £2 a week to buy up to ten items of food.
