Police are renewing their appeal to drivers to check their dash cams following a bank raid in Eston.
They were called on Tuesday last week 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 was thought to be using false number plates and was later found burnt out in South Lackenby, where the thieves
changed into a dark coloured BMW before driving off.
Anyone who witnessed the event or has footage is asked to call police on 101.
Part of the empty supermarket alongside the A66 and Boro's Riverside Stadium looks like it's going to get it's first occupant.
After Sainsburys pulled out of opening on the site due to what they called 'a change in shopping patterns', it's been announced that a new concept of Iceland store called The Food Warehouse will be taking one of the six units that the larger store has been converted into.
The frozen food chain says that the new store will be a fresh new way to shop and the store is expected to open next year.
Arrangements for this year's Festival of Thrift in Redcar 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 and there's more online at their website festivalofthrift.co.uk
Finally, further disruption will affect Northern Rail services in our area, as the RMT Union has announced strike action on Friday the 1st and Monday the 4th of September, which is right at the start of the new school and college terms.
The dispute over driver controlled operation has seen services reduced from Saltburn and Redcar, as well as a very limited service for Nunthorpe.
You can keep you up to date on the disruption at our Facebook and Twitter pages nearer the time.
