A Hemlington man has been sentenced to more than four years in prison after injuring a police officer who attempted to stop his vehicle from fleeing from a Coulby Newham car park.

Corey Travis, aged 24, was behind the wheel of a car in the Tesco car park at Coulby Newham on 2nd June when a police officer tried to stop his vehicle by holding out his hand.

The officer then grabbed the bonnet as the car drove towards him but was flung to the ground as Mr Travis, who was banned from driving at the time, made off.

Mr Travis then reversed his vehicle, swinging the police officer around, then set off at speed.

The officer released his grip and was thrown to the ground hitting his head and elbow, suffering concussion and bruising to his body.

Mr Travis then sped away from police around Hemlington, at speeds of up to 75mph in 30 and 40mph zones, and overtaking traffic on the wrong side of the road.

In court yesterday Travis, of Coatham Close, in Hemlington admitted two counts of dangerous driving, assaulting the police officer causing actual bodily harm, drug driving, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

He was sentenced to a total of four years and two months, with a 61-month driving ban.

 

Police are asking for the publics help to trace a missing man from Redcar.

Concerns were raised after 54-yr-old Anthony McQuade from Laburnum Road in Redcar drove off in his orange Peugeot and was last spotted in the Houghton-le-Spring area just after 1.30 yesterday morning.

He is believed to be wearing a navy and white striped t-shirt or jumper and very faded black jeans.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Mr McQuade is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

The Redcar lifeboats were called into operation yesterday following a report of a man in distress on Huntcliffe at Saltburn.

Both lifeboats launched just after 1am along with crews from Skinningrove and Staithes

Cleveland Fire Brigade, the North East Ambulance service, the Hart Team from South Shields, Cleveland Police, and the national police air support service all responded to the alert.

Whilst a search of the area was being conducted information was received from the Humber Coastguard at Bridlington that the casualty had been located ashore by Cleveland police officers.

The lifeboats were then stood down and returned to the station at Redcar.
