Police in Saltburn are once again appealing for information after further anti-social behaviour in the Valley Gardens at the weekend.

Overnight on Saturday into Sunday vandals pulled out all the new trees that have just been planted by the volunteers who help to maintain the gardens.

Officers also found drug paraphernalia in the snow.

Anyone with information about the people responsible, or who has seen anything suspicious over the last couple of days is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend.

At 11am on Saturday North Yorkshire Police contacted the team to check on a couple of vulnerable adults who had been cut off in their cottage on the Moors and were running low on supplies.

The team used one of their Land Rover Ambulances to reach the couple after a drive across the snow covered moorland roads and found that they were both ok and that their access roads were being cleared by a snowplough.

15 team members were involved for around 3 hours.

 

Cleveland Police and their partner agencies have thanked members of the public who heeded warnings during the recent bad weather.

Last week there was disruption as the weather made driving conditions in our area treacherous.

However the majority of motorists heeded the advice to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary, and police say that this helped ease the burden on all services and is to be commended.

Though a thaw is now in progress, there are still ice warnings in place and drivers should proceed with caution – especially in rural areas where some minor roads may still be snow-covered.

Coastal warnings are also still in place with strong winds and high waves still expected and people are urged to take care and stay away from risk areas near the coast.
