Police are appealing for information after a family suffered a burglary at their allotment on Saltersgill Avenue in Middlesbrough.
The perpetrators smashed a window and reached in to throw missiles at the chickens within the shed, killing 2 chickens and injuring another.
The allotment has been targeted before, but this occasion has been particularly upsetting for the children of the family who are aged 2, 4 and 6 years old.
If you have any information that may lead to those responsible please contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Police in Hemlington are clamping down on cyclists in a pedestrianised area of the town.
Officers from Middlesbrough Neighbourhood Policing Team have received a number of complaints from local residents who visit the Viewley shops about youths riding in a careless manner, doing wheelies, and skidding their bikes.
Now NO CYCLING signs have been put up around the entrances of the shopping precinct and police will be monitoring the area to ensure there is no further anti-social behaviour.
It was a big day on the cycling calendar yesterday as the East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix returned for its second year.
The race got underway yesterday at midday in Guisborough, before heading through many of the towns and villages in our area.
Commonwealth medal winners Harry and Charlie Tanfield joined Andy Tennant, Ollie Wood and Ian Bibby for the 100-mile elite race.
Thousands of local people lined the route and watched the pelaton as it travelled through our area.
First across the finish line was 18-year-old Tom Pidcock who won the race for Team Wiggins, ahead of Tom Moses in second, and Jonathan McEvoy in third.
