A 17 year old youth has been charged after an articulated fair lorry smashed into a cottage in Stokesley.
The gold Foden HGV also collided with three parked cars shortly before 4 in the morning on Wednesday.
Now a 17-year-old youth has been charged with failing to give a breath sample after the truck left a trail of destruction in College Square.
He was also arrested on suspicion of several other alleged offences, but has been released while a North Yorkshire Police investigation continues.
He is charged with offences including aggravated vehicle taking and driving without due care and attention, driving without insurance and not in accordance with his licence.
The articulated lorry, which is believed to have been part of Stokesley fair, crashed into a silver Audi A3, a blue Peugeot 308 and a Mercedes C Class parked on the street.
Record numbers of visitors flocked to this year’s National Festival of Thrift at Kirkleatham, near Redcar.
Over 45,000 attended the UK’s national celebration of sustainability as the award-winning event celebrated its fifth year of spreading the word about good eco-friendly living.
A packed programme entertained and amazed festival-goers throughout the weekend.
People spent the weekend taking part in a huge variety of activities including tucking into a giant community meal inspired by Saltburn in the walled garden and eating at pop-up campervan restaurants, making noisy toys from old computer parts, creating a bag from an old t-shirt in the BBC’s craft tipi, bringing stories to life, crafting, den-building, making and learning together.
In addition over 130 stalls selling upcycled products and locally sourced goods from regional entrepreneurial small businesses did a roaring trade with visitors.
The cast for the North-east’s scariest attraction Scream Factory has been chosen.
Over a hundred horror-loving actors turned out for a casting call at Imaginative Productions in Billingham to play zombies, scary clowns and other terrifying characters for the region’s biggest Halloween haunt.
Scream Factory, which is held in the grounds of Kirkleatham Museum, Redcar, allows groups of friends to walk through a purpose-built village, complete with handmade props and live actors who's job is to scare the living daylights out of visitors.
Around 90 people were given parts in the scream fest, there were also 25 staff vacancies up for grabs such as car park attendants, and ticketing and event staff.
