Three men have been released on bail after threatening to kill a 16-year-old boy with a pretend gun.
It happened on Sunday night on Arthur Street in Redcar and sparked a big police investigation with armed officers and even sniffer dogs.
They set out after people reported a group of men threatening a boy outside a block of flats near the seafront.
Three men aged 41, 33 and 25 were arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill and for carrying an imitation firearm.
Now they’ve been released on bail while police carry on investigating.
An adult found in an inflatable canoe with four young children has sparked a warning.
Redcar Coastguard was called to Saltburn coast on Monday but found the people ashore.
They were cold and wet and weren’t in any danger.
But the adult was given strict advice against taking inflatable boats out to sea.
It comes after lifeboat crews had to rescue a man in July after he drifted a mile out to sea in an inflatable dinghy.
Bus routes in Bankfields are being cut after the estate was deemed too dangerous.
Stops between Eston and Normanby will be missed out by 64a Arriva buses in the evening.
It comes after repeated vandalism to buses on the route, the latest of which happened on Sunday.
The buses all have CCTV and Arriva are working with the police to try and put a stop to the damage.
But for now all 64a evening journeys will run between Normanby Top and Eston Square, missing out Bankfields completely.
