Police in Redcar are appealing for the publics help after a spate of wheelie bin fires in Redcar.
Over the past few weeks officers from the Redcar Neighbourhood Policing Team have received a large number of reports regarding wheelie bins being stolen and set on fire in the area of Roseberry Field.
Now they are advising householders to keep their bins secure and locked away.
Police are working with partner agencies to resolve the issue, and are appealing for anyone with information regarding the anti social behaviour in the area to contact the Neighbourhood Police Team on the non-emergency number 101.
More than 170 bikers dressed as Santa will power through our area later.
Bikers from the Boundary 500 motorcycle club will be taking part in their annual 'Santa Run', which gets underway in Thornaby at 11.30 today.
The 22-mile ride takes them through Stockton and Middlesbrough, before the bikes head along the Trunk Road into Redcar.
The riders are expected to pass the Redcar Beacon at around ten to one today, before heading along the Esplanade and High Street and up towards Kirkleatham Hall where the event will finish.
The popular annual event has proved popular with thousands of spectators in recent years, and has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for Zoe's Place Baby Hospice in Normanby.
