Police are appealing for witnesses following a burglary at a local bookmakers.
The incident occured at Ladbrokes on Ennis Square in Dormanstown at twenty to one yesterday morning.
A vehicle stopped outside the Ladbrokes store and a number of offenders entered the premises.
They stole a safe containing a Samsung tablet and a large amount of cash.
The offenders then made off in the vehicle.
Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Emma Kensey on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A local MP has said that proposed upgrades to trains used in our area is an 'insult to Teesside'.
Redcar MP Anna Turley has hit out at the replacement of the Pacer trains currently used in our area with refurbished carriages.
This follows Northern Rail's confirmation that new trains about to come off the production line will not be making it to Teesside and the North East.
Anna said that the needs of passengers in our area just as great as the rest of the Northern region and it is insulting that we will be missing out on modern rail transport.
The operator of a local chemical plant has warned the public of a potential increase in noise levels over the next couple of weeks.
SABIC are commissioning a new boiler on their Olefins plant at Wilton which may cause additional levels of noise from steam whilst the activity takes place.
The activity will take place during daytime hours only, starting from today for a period of between seven to ten days.
There will be no activity over a weekend.
The steam ‘blows’ may cause a mixture of continuous and intermittent noise from the Olefins plant.
SABIC say they will work hard to minimize the disturbance to our neighbours by feeding the steam through a designed quench system, and have apologised in advance for any inconvenience the additional noise may cause.
