Saltburn’s historic cliff lift will be closed until Easter for a major £400,000 refurbishment.

The tramway, which lifts passengers up and down from Saltburn ’s beach and promenade, will close slightly early on October 5 for work to begin. 

Earlier this summer, Redcar and Cleveland Council launched an investigation after the water-powered lift broke down for the third time in a year.

Now, plans to overhaul it include replacing mechanical and other parts and improving lighting and fencing.

 

Detectives have issued a warning to Snapchat users across Cleveland after receiving reports that people have had private photographs of them shared online without their knowledge or consent.

Cleveland Police has had reports of four incidents where photographs have been taken from Snapchat and published without permission.

The victims in these cases are often teenagers who have either sent selfies to a new romantic contact or taken selfies of themselves in a state of undress to track weight loss or fitness progress.

Police are advising people to remember that once something is online, it’s almost impossible to delete all traces of it. They are urging internet users to make sure that they have strong passwords to protect their accounts and photographs.

 

Local people and organisations are being asked for their help to draw up new ward boundaries across Redcar and Cleveland.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has also announced that it is minded to recommend that the council should have 59 councillors in the future.

The commission is now drawing up a new pattern of wards to accommodate 59 councillors, and is asking for the public's help to tell where the new boundaries should be drawn.

You can submit comments on the Local Government Boundary Commission for England website at lgbce.org.uk.

The consultation closes on 4 December.
