The council are warning fly-tippers that a £400 fine could be coming their way.

They have new powers to help take action against people who don't get rid of household waste properly.

And two offenders have already been hit with a massive £400 fixed penalty notice.

One offender fly-tipped her fridge freezer in the alleyway of her property while another dumped 19 bin bags of household rubbish in the alleyway near his home.

 

Police believe there are over 1400 computers affected with a trojan horse in the Cleveland area.

130 of those are in Saltburn while Linthorpe in Middlesbrough is believed to have almost 700 potentially risky computers.

Cleveland Police released the statistics yesterday after a sensitive investigation.

They believe there’s a possibility that some computers could have been infected for years.

They’re urging residents to make sure their computers are protected by anti-virus software and passwords are regularly changed.

 

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council are asking the public to nominate people who have made a difference to the community.

There are two awards up for grabs.

The Making a Difference Award is open to any person or team who is doing outstanding work.

And the Geoff Waterfield memorial trophy is for local apprentices who are passionate to learn more and achieve high.

Nominations can be made on the council’s website by the seventh of July.
