Cleveland Police are asking people to surrender their knives without fear of prosecution from Monday.
It’s part of a national campaign to try and tackle knife crime.
It follows on from a successful campaign in May where 172 knives and sharp objects were handed in.
The amnesty will end a week on Sunday. And anyone with objects to surrender can put them in knife bins at the police station at Kirkleatham.
Once items are surrendered they will be safely disposed of.
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.
Summer Sound music festival looks set to sell out again.
The festival takes place later this month for its fifth year running.
Friday the 28th of July will be a 70s and 80s retro party while Saturday the 29th of July is dedicated to rock and pop legends.
The Saturday night will be hosted by Zetland FM's very own Nick Wright.
The day will see tributes to Robbie Williams, Pink, The Beautiful South and The Killers as well as local band Last Anthem.
Organisers say tickets are selling fast for the event which saw 4000 people turn up last year.
