Police are releasing CCTV images of a vehicle believed to be involved in a burglary at Saltburn Golf Club, during which a large quantity of golfing equipment was stolen.
The incident happened at the Golf Club on Guisborough Road, at around 10pm on Monday 8th January.
Four suspects, all wearing dark clothing, approached the premises in a black 4x4 vehicle before gaining entry to the golf shop at the front of the club.
The suspects then made off in the vehicle in the direction of the crossroads at ‘four lane ends’ near to the A174.
Anyone with information in regards to those responsible or the vehicle is asked to contact Detective Constable Sarah Green from Redcar and Cleveland Operational Crime Team on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Police have revealed the results of a drink and drug drive crackdown across Cleveland and Durham.
More than 4,000 drivers were breath-tested throughout December by the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit during their annual Christmas drink and drug drive campaign.
In total, 119 drivers were arrested for drink-driving and 60 were arrested for drug driving.
This compares to 116 drink-drivers and 57 people who tested positive for drugs during the same campaign last year.
A number of operations to stop check vehicles were carried out, both in the morning and the evening, where drivers were asked to provide a voluntary breath test.
Officers also targeted activities in areas known for drink-related collisions and drink or drug drive offenders.
Train operator Northern is reminding its customers to plan carefully ahead of todays third day of RMT strike action.
Northern, which operates rail services between Middlesbrough, Saltburn and Whitby, plans to run around 1,350 services across its network as part of an amended timetable today.
Details of the revised timetables, as well as other information about the impact of the RMT strike action, can be found on Northern’s website at northernrailway.co.uk/strike
