A court has heard how a man stole items from a Saltburn supermarket after biting off the security tags.
50 year old John Seed stole £77 worth of razors from the towns Sainsbury's store after removing the security tags with his teeth.
Teesside Magistrates’ Court heard that Seed had a lengthy criminal record, with most of his offending relating to incidents of theft.
The 50-year-old pleaded guilty to theft at a hearing on Monday.
Seed, of Normanby Road in Middlesbrough, was ordered to pay £40 costs and a £30 charge.
Plans for a care home at a derelict site close to Redcar seafront might finally be taking shape.
Plans for a four-storey residential home on the site formerly occupied by the Cliffe garage and filling station just off Redcar’s Esplanade were originally submitted in 2012.
However it was never built, and the site has remained empty since its demolition in 2007.
Now, revised plans have been submitted for the proposed care home, with 56 bedrooms and parking spaces for 12 cars.
The public consultation on the scheme runs until February 23.
The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland has invited residents to a ceremony in Redcar’s Garden of Remembrance to mark National Holocaust Memorial Day.
Taking place this Friday at 11.30am, the ceremony will involve members of the public, civic officials and school children remembering the atrocities of the Second World War.
The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Cllr Karen King, will be in attendance in the Garden of Remembrance along with representatives from the British Legion, Parish Councils in the borough as well as council staff.
Also in attendance will be pupils from Coatham Primary School who will be marking the day by laying flowers at the Holocaust Commemorative Tree.
The Garden of Remembrance is located on Coatham Road, opposite the Cenotaph, and members of the public are welcome to attend.
