The Prime Minister Theresa May is visiting our area later today to launch a major regeneration project.
The Prime Minister will officially launch the South Tees Development Corporation (STDC), which has been working on plans to redevelop a 4,500-acre stretch of land on the south bank of the River Tees.
As the first Mayoral Development Corporation outside of London, the STDC will become a flagbearer for major business growth across the region and will work with industry to take advantage of opportunities in the area - part of which was formerly the SSI steelworks.
Hundreds of businesses in the Tees Valley will be able to benefit from the project, which is expected to create thousands of jobs and significantly boost industrial growth in the North East.
An appeal has been launched after a family home was destroyed in a fire in Redcar.
The fire broke out at the house on Cropton Close at around 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Five fire appliances attended the scene. No one is believed to have been injured in the fire.
A neighbour said she heard two loud bangs, and a short time later saw smoke billowing out of the terraced property.
Another man said he could see smoke after hearing two loud bangs and thought that someone was having a bonfire.
An appeal has now been launched on the 'Go Fund Me' website to help the family to whom the house belongs, who are believed to have lost a large amount of property and personal items in the blaze.
A group of children in Carlin How who were responsible for throwing mud balls at the local Community Centre have been made to clean up the mess they'd made.
Volunteers and local residents have become fed up with the behaviour of these children, who had thrown mud at the wall and windows of the Carlin How Community Centre.
Police Community Support Officers and the local Anti-social behaviour Officer organised for all the children involved to help wash off all the mud that they have thrown.
Every child involved was taken to the centre by their parent on Monday, and assisted in the efforts to scrub and wipe all the mud off.
Posting on Facebook, officers from the Guisborough Neighbourhood Policing Team say that they hope the children will now think twice before committing further Anti Social Behaviour in the area.
