Police are still urging drivers to check their dash cams after a bank raid in Eston;

Police are still urging drivers to check their dash cams after a bank raid in Eston.

They were called on Tuesday morning after a white Ford Kuga drove into the front of Yorkshire Bank.

Men stole tens of thousands of pounds in cash boxes before driving away.

The car is thought to have used false number plates and was later found burnt out in South Lackenby.

There the thieves changed into a dark coloured BMW before driving off.

Anyone who witnessed the event or anyone with dash cam footage is asked to call police on 101.

 

Hundreds of steelworkers can now opt into a new pension scheme to make their futures more certain.

But parts of the deal have been criticised by unions and Redcar MP Anna Turley.

Tata Steel has agreed to separate itself from the British Steel Pension to allow a new scheme to be set up.

Workers can opt in to or can move into the current Pension Protection Fund.

But Anna Turley said it still fell short of the big step forward workers were hoping for.

 

...and arrangements for this year's Festival of Thrift at Kirkleatham Museum are now well underway.

The theme for the fifth annual event has been revealed as the power of nature.

Visitors can learn how to live sustainably by getting creative while saving money and the environment.

New highlights for this year include a mystery tour in a converted double decker bus, ideas for thrifty ceremonies and the chance to become a citizen of Cardboardia.

It's set to take place on the 23rd and 24th of September at Kirkleatham Museum.
