A busy route through our area was closed yesterday lunchtime following a number of accidents.
The A174 Parkway was closed eastbound between Marton and Greystones roundabout, with a further incident near to the Ormesby turn off and another just before the Wilton turn off.
The road was closed for over an hour whilst emergency services dealt with the incidents, with delays on surrounding routes during the closure.
The incidents are believed to have been caused by black ice on the road surface.
Further icy conditions are expected today, and the Met Office has issued a yellow warning of wintery conditions in our area until lunchtime.
Volunteers from Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have once again been called into action in our area.
On Tuesday the team were called to help a Middlesbrough man who had been injured whilst walking on Roseberry Topping.
The incident began just after midday when the 26-year-old man fell and injured his legs whilst walking in the boulder field area of the popular beauty spot.
He was helped at the scene by passing walkers, one of whom carried him 100 metres to the shelter of the shooting house near the top of Roseberry.
The Team responded to the call out by deploying their two Landrover ambulances and working with paramedics from the Ambulance Service.
The injured man was treated at the scene, in cold and wet conditions, by team members and the paramedics before being carried in one of the Landrover ambulances a kilometre to the farm and a waiting ambulance.
Officers from Cleveland Police's Crime Prevention Team are launching their 'Jingle Bells' campaign by hosting a 'pop up shop' in our area.
