Police have recovered a stolen motorbike after spotting it in Redcar last night.
Early yesterday evening an officer from the Redcar Neighbourhood Policing Team spotted the motorbike being pushed on Station Road in Redcar.
The bike had been stolen from the Carlin How area earlier this month and officers are now hoping to return it to its owner.
Cleveland Police are reminding motorists not to let an opportunist thief steal from your car.
The Force has seen an increase in theft from cars over the last couple of weeks.
The nights drawing in allows opportunist thieves to work under the cover of darkness more easily.
It takes only 10 seconds for valuables to be stolen so police advice is to ensure all door and windows are locked and any items which are inside the car are locked out of sight in the boot.
There have been 298 reported thefts from vehicles over the last five weeks across the Cleveland Police area and officers say a great number of these could have been avoided if only the motorist had taken the time to secure both the car and the valuables from within it.
Crew members from Redcar RNLI will be drumming up support ahead of tomorrows match at the Riverside Stadium.
The Redcar RNLI lifeboat station is Middlebrough FC’s charity of the year, and before the crunch Championship match against Derby County tomorrow, crew members and fundraisers will be outside the stadium to hold a bucket collection.
Also at the stadium will be the charity’s own mascot Stormy Stan, who will be in the Family Zone to meet young fans.
As well as the fundraising effort, the football club will be helping to spread some of the RNLI’s key water safety messages.
The matchday programme will contain useful tips and advice on how to stay safe near and in the sea, and on the big screen inside the ground there will be a powerful video promoting the RNLI’s FLOAT campaign.
This urges anyone who falls into cold water to fight their instinct to swim hard and to fight the cold water, and instead to do as little as possible, and float.
