It has been announced that the Tees valley is in the running to become a logistics hub for Heathrow airport.
This is part of Heathrow’s £16billion expansion plans.
They are proposing to create four hubs across the UK where components will be assembled and then delivered to the airport.
The aim is to spread the investment’s financial benefits beyond the south-east and it should be more cost effective.
Tees valley Mayor Ben Houchen has welcomed the announcement.
Cleveland Police's Efficiency and leadership Inspection has been ranked 'good' in all areas.
They were ranked as 'good' in their efficiency of keeping local people safe and in reduction of crime.
The annual inspection, conducted by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services, further concluded the force was good at planning for the future, their understanding of demand and use of resources.
This is the second year running that they have been judged as good across all categories.
An East Cleveland Village has brought gold to our area in a prestigious gardening competition.
Stanghow has won Gold in the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom competition.
This is Britain in bloom’s 53rd year and is a uk-wide competition supporting communities to improve their environment through gardening.
Stanghow won gold in the small village category, competing against Bray in Berkshire and Kilconquhar in Scotland.
This is the resident’s group’s fourth national gold award, as well as previously winning the silver guilt.
Regionally, for the Northumbria in bloom competition, they have taken 8 gold awards.
