Police in South Bank recovered more than £12,000 worth of suspected amphetamine and cannabis after a warrant was executed at an address on Stephens Road.

The raid, which took place on Friday, resulted in the arrest of a 55-year-old man on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.

He has been released under investigation.

Officers searching the address found more than 2kg of suspected amphetamine and a large amount of cannabis.

Inspector Darren Bainbridge, from Redcar and Cleveland Neighbourhood Policing Team, thanked the local community for coming forward with their concerns.

He said information from members of the public is vital in removing illegal drugs from the streets and helping to identify those suspected of being involved in drug dealing.

Anyone with information on drugs activity in their local area is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

More than 800 homes, a pub and a hotel have been given the green light to be built close to Marske.

There had been strong opposition to the plans, including local campaigners, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, and local MP Anna Turley.

The applicants, the West Midlands Metropolitan Pension Fund appealed after the council had refused the scheme, and a public inquiry was held in Redcar last year.

However despite the objections, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Sajid Javid, has given the project the go ahead.

The housing estate will also include a neighbourhood centre, a petrol station, a drive-thru, a park-and-ride car park, a pub and restaurant and a 60-bedroom hotel.

 

Racegoers at Redcar have paid their respects to fallen heroes during a poignant remembrance parade.

Punters at Redcar Racecourse at the weekend fell silent as veterans joined present day servicemen and women, as well as cadets, for the parade in front of the grandstand.

Led by Parade Master Eric Howden, the parade was the centrepiece of Redcar's annual Help For Heroes Day which has raised thousands of pounds in recent years.

Eric, who is chairman of Redcar and Cleveland Royal British Legion, said that it was wonderful to see the generations brought together in the spirit of remembrance.

He said it's a real honour to take part in the parade and thanked the team at Redcar Racecourse for their support.
