Five men have appeared in court, and a sixth man has been arrested following an alleged murder in Normanby.

Yesterday police arrested a 32-year-old man on suspicion of assisting an offender and he currently remains in custody.

Earlier this week police charged five men with murder and two counts of wounding with intent after the alleged incident and they appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday.

27-year-old Steven John Willis sadly died following the alleged incident.

Anyone with information is asked to speak to an officer or call the non-emergency number 101.

 

Vandals have caused extensive damage to Redcar Racecourse after a stolen JCB smashed through the track before being ditched in a field.

It's the fourth time the track has been wrecked due to similar incidents and the racecourse will now have to fork out to repair the damage.

Cleveland Police believe there may have been up to seven suspects involved in the theft which took place on Tuesday.

They say the JCB was stolen from a building site around the Greenstones Road area at around 9:05pm that day.

It is understood police attempted to follow the JCB before it was dumped in a field near Mucklow Close but no arrests have yet been made.

 

The recent sunny weather has brought pleasure to thousands of people, however police are reminding the public that criminals love the hot weather too.

Officers from the Redcar Neighbourhood Police Team are advising householders to ensure they lock all gardening equipment away when it is finished with, and to ensure that garden sheds and garages are securely locked.
