A major road in our area was closed for more than 8 hours on Saturday after the discovery of a woman's body.

Police were called at around 3.30am on Saturday by a motorist reporting someone in the westbound carriageway on the A174 Parkway near Ormesby.

When police arrived at the scene, the body of a woman was discovered.

Inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death are continuing, however she has now been identified and officers are not currently treating her death as suspicious.

Police are appealing for assistance from anyone who travelled on the Parkway early on Saturday morning, anyone with dashcam footage, or anyone who may have seen a woman in dark clothing walking along the carriageway from around 1am.

Anyone with information should contact Sergeant Jon Stokeld of Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.

 

The volunteers of Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend when a long distance running event in our area ran into problems with the weather.

Around 300 runners had set off from Helmsley at around 9am on Saturday morning to run the 55 miles to Guisborough.

However the event was halted at Kildale as the wintery weather closed in during the evening.

The rescue team were alerted at 8pm when the Yorkshire Ambulance Service requested help with more than 30 cases of hypothermia.

The team worked in wintery conditions, with zero visibility at times to evacuate around a hundred participants in Land Rover ambulances back to Guisborough and finally stood down around midnight.

 

It was a disappointing afternoon for Marske United in the first leg of the Buildbase FA Vase semi-final.

The Seasiders travelled to Stockton Town on Saturday afternoon after issues with the pitch condition and drainage at the GER stadium.

Marske dominated possession but failed to break down an excellent Stockton defence, while Stockton took the few chances they had.

The match ended Stockton Town 2, Marske United 0, and it means that Marske now have it all to do in the 2nd leg next Saturday to reach the final which will be held at Wembley.
