Police are appealing for information after a knife point robbery in New Marske.
The incident occurred on Monday night, at around 8:55pm at McColl’s on Gurney Street when a man walked into the shop and threatened a member of staff with a knife.
The man then took a quantity of cash from the till and ran out of the store.
This man is described as being a white male, in his 20s, of skinny build and he was wearing a hooded top.
No one was injured.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone with information regarding the man responsible is asked to contact DC Mick Jackson from Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage following a six-vehicle collision on Marton Road in Middlesbrough.
The collision occurred at around 5.25pm on Monday, close to James Cook University Hospital, and involved a silver Volkswagen Passat, a grey Fiat Punto, a blue Suzuki Swift, a black Hyundai Coupe S, a yellow Ford Transit van, a black BMW 320.
Three occupants from the Volkswagen Passat, a woman and one-year-old boy from the Suzuki Swift and a man from the Hyundai Coupe S all attended hospital with minor injuries. All were later released.
Officers would like to appeal for any witnesses who have not already spoken to police or anyone who may have dashcam footage of the incident or the vehicles shortly before the incident to contact them.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Dan Badger from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.
The Redcar and Cleveland 'Love it' campaign has given a local park anew lease of life.
Visitors will soon be able to enjoy Zetland Park more than ever before as major redevelopment works see new benches installed and footpaths completely relaid.
As well as the new paths, almost half-a-dozen additional benches have been installed. The new benches were originally taken from the park last year and thoroughly restored to a brand new condition with new wooden slats and a fresh coat of paint.
The aim of the improvement works is to give Redcar a boost, both for community groups who do a lot of voluntary work under the 'Love it' banner in the park, as well as giving visitors – and residents – green space to enjoy.
