Police have named a man who died at an address in Eston on Monday evening.
Following a formal identification, police have now officially named the man as 43-year-old Jason Michael Dean.
Today, Jason’s family paid tribute to him, describing him as “a loving father and grandfather” who leaves behind doting parents, a long-term partner, two daughters, a son and a granddaughter.
The family went on to say, “Jason was a man who had faced difficulties during his life but he did not deserve to die.”
A 29-year-old man from Eston who was arrested in connection with the death appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland will be flying the Commonwealth Flag on Monday as our area joins a series of international celebrations.
The flag will be raised at 10.00am outside the Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart.
It is one of 900 that are all being raised at the same time throughout the Commonwealth.
The ceremony will be led by the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Karen King, who will read out a special message from The Queen celebrating the unity of the 53 nations.
Pupils from Normanby Primary School will sing ‘World in Union’ and lead guests – and members of the public – in singing The National Anthem – God Save the Queen.
Members of the public are welcome to attend the ceremony at 9.50am near the flagpoles at the Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart.
A number of young, aspiring women are encouraging people to nominate local heroines for a special award ceremony.
On International Women’s Day, the Year 11 pupils launched this year’s Redcar and Cleveland Inspiring Women Awards at Redcar Station where Emmeline Pankhurst visited in 1909.
Wearing sashes, the girls were also recognising the centenary of some women winning the right to vote.
It’s all part of the Inspiring Women awards activities, which culminates in an awards ceremony taking place on Friday 15 June at Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart.
Accolades for individual achievement, volunteering, community contribution, women in business, inspiring others, and young women will be awarded, and an overall winner will receive the Mo Mowlam Award.
To nominate an inspiring woman, you can visit the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council website.
The deadline for nominations is Monday 14 May.
