Redcar MP Anna Turley has given her reaction following the announcement of the temporary closure of the Regent Cinema in Redcar.

In a statement issued yesterday, Anna said that she is very concerned to hear the Regent has had to temporarily close due to some urgent structural work being required.

She said it is disappointing to see a much loved local asset close its doors and lots of people have been in touch with her to let me know that they feel the same.

Anna says she have spoken to council directors to seek assurances that the closure will only be temporary, and that they are in no way intending to close the building permanently.

Anna says she is now looking forward to working together with both the council and the community to make sure the Regent has a bright and sustainable future for many years to come.

 

Police have released CCTV footage in order to trace two people who may be able to assist with enquiries into an attempted burglary in Middlesbrough.

The incident took place overnight between Wednesday 28th March and Thursday 29th March on Kedward Avenue.

One of the people in the footage appears to be a female with long, dark hair in a ponytail and possibly a tattoo covering her right hand, wearing a tracksuit and Nike trainers.

The second person is a male aged in his late twenties or thirties with a dark beard.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the people in the footage is asked to contact PC Chris Lindsey on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Doctors are advising parents to be on the lookout for the symptoms of scarlet fever, after our area saw a large increase in the number of reported cases.

Redcar and Cleveland saw a fourfold increase in the number of reports in the first three months of this year, with 79, up from 13 in the same period in 2017.

Scarlet fever is a contagious, seasonal bacterial illness that mainly affects children and is not uncommon for this time of year.

Symptoms include a sore throat, headache and fever with a characteristic fine, pinkish or red rash with a sandpapery feel.

If you suspect that your child may have the symptoms of scarlet fever, you should contact your local GP or call the NHS on 111.
