Police are asking for the public's help to trace a missing boy in our area.

15-year-old Jordan Everington was last seen in Roseberry Square in Redcar yesterday afternoon at around 1pm.

Jordan is described as being a white male with blonde hair and around 5 ft 6” tall.

He was last seen wearing a blue hooded jumper and grey shorts.

Anyone who may have seen Jordan or anyone who knows of his whereabouts is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101.

 

Free sanitary products could become a reality in our area after a campaign to tackle “period poverty” received further support from the local council.

Redcar and Cleveland Council Borough became Teesside’s fourth local authority to commit to tackling the issue when the full council voted unanimously to pass a motion moved by the council leader Sue Jeffrey.

It means that our area has now joined Middlesbrough, Stockton and Hartlepool in making such a commitment.

The scheme was originally launched in Scotland after research revealed austerity is affecting women more and forces many women to choose between putting food on the table and buying sanitary products.

The council will now look into how the scheme could operate and be funded in Redcar and Cleveland.

 

Popular children’s writer Michael Rosen will be making a special appearance in South Bank to celebrate a new collection of poetry by local children.

The former Children’s Laureate and author of the best-selling We’re All Going On A Bear Hunt will launch Endeavour, a new anthology of poetry written by primary school children from across the Tees Valley today between 1.30-2.30pm, at Inspire 2 Learn on Normanby Road in South Bank.

The book is the result of poets working with children from 45 primary schools across the region to create poems about travel, discovery, belonging, immigration and emigration.

The project was funded by the Tees Valley Combined Authority.
