A group of men from Liverpool are thought to be linked to the recent incident where a local man was beaten with baseball bats and shot in the leg.
The incident happened early on Tuesday last week on Skippers Lane industrial estate.
Four men in a navy blue Volkswagen Golf used baseball bats to attack the victim before shooting him in the leg.
And a few hours later police discovered the car on fire in woods near Saltburn.
Now police are appealing for local businesses who might have served a group of men from Liverpool the night before.
They are urging anyone with information or dash cam footage of the Volkswagen to call them on 101.
Residents have protested the removal of the double yellow lines on the Coast Road.
They parked their cars either side of the road to try and show the chaos it would cause.
The parking restrictions would've been removed during the summer months for visitors to the Stray.
But now the council have said the restrictions will stay in place due to the number of complaints.
There will be no trains between Redcar and Saltburn later this month due to engineering work.
The vital work will upgrade the switches and crossings that allow trains to move from one track to another.
This means there will be no trains at all for five days from the 28th of July but a bus replacement service is being organised.
Passengers are asked to check the national rail website before travelling.
People are reporting mobile phone problems across Redcar and Cleveland.
It's believed EE users are experiencing the most problems.
Reports have come in from Marske and Guisborough as well as other areas in Teesside.
Engineers are working to fix the problems and everything is expected to be back to normal by later today.
