A woman has died following a two vehicle collision on the A174 on Friday.
70 year old Linda Pyers of Coulby Newham was pronounced dead at James Cook University hospital shortly after she was taken there by ambulance.
At around 6.45pm on Friday evening, the silver Toyota Avensis she was travelling in was in collision with a black VW transporter van on the eastbound off slip road at Low Lane.
Another passenger from the Avensis, a 79 year old woman, was taken to James Cook University Hospital for minor injuries and was later released.
The 78 year old female driver from the Avensis was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and has been released under investigation.
Officers are asking any witnesses to the incident to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
A family dog has died after falling over the cliffs at Saltburn.
The two Redcar lifeboats were launched to search for the springer spaniel dog, which was lost at the top of Huntcliff at around 1.25pm on Saturday.
However lifeboat crews found the spaniel at the bottom of the cliffs and, sadly, it had not survived the fall.
The body of the dog was removed and taken back to Redcar lifeboat station by the Coastguard team.
The coastguard has issued safety advice for anyone walking dogs near the coast, including keeping dogs on the lead when close to cliff edges, and never to attempt to rescue your dog if it means putting yourself in danger. Instead you should call 999 and ask for the coastguard.
Redevelopment of the former site of the Redcar Bowl could be moving a step closer.
The site has stood empty since its demolition in 2014.
However it is now reported that Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are currently in talks with an un-named developer who is interested in the site.
It is believed that the talks currently centre around a hotel being built on the site.
