MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has called on the government to do everything in their power to gain ownership of the SSI site from the Thai banks, including using compulsory purchase powers.

 

Police are appealing for information after the theft of fog signal detonators from an address in Redcar. 

Fog signal detonators are explosives that are used as a safety measure on train tracks to warn other train drivers of incidents on the line ahead during dense fog, when signals are difficult to see.

Around 15 were stolen from an address on Aintree Road in Redcar at around 5.45pm on Monday. They are described as yellow and around 5cm in diameter.

Officers believe that a man attended the address and drove away with the property on the back of a flat back vehicle, potentially a Ford Transit. This male is described as white, wearing a blue top with white stripes down the side, grey bottoms with white stripes down the side and black footwear. 

These items could potentially pose a risk to people and police would like to locate them to prevent any harm being caused. 

Anyone who may have information regarding the whereabouts of the items or the male responsible is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Police are appealing for information after a 36-year-old man was assaulted in the Helmsley Drive area of Guisborough.

The incident occurred between 8:30-10am on Thursday 12th April when an altercation occurred between the victim and another male which resulted in the victim being punched twice in the face.

As a result of the assault, the victim suffered a broken jaw.

A 49-year-old man has been interviewed voluntarily in connection with the incident.

Anyone who may have been in the vicinity at that time of the assault or anyone with private CCTV footage of the incident are asked to contact DC Cat McKenzie on 101.

 

MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has called on the government to do everything in their power to gain ownership of the SSI site from the Thai banks, including using compulsory purchase powers.

In a letter to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Anna said Teesside could have a new ‘industrial renaissance’ but worried bankers on the other side of the world could stand in the way.

Commenting on the letter, Anna said that there is a masterplan and huge interest in the site, but land ownership is a massive barrier which could delay or stop jobs coming back to the site.

She said that this autumn we will be three years on from the steelworks closure and she wants reassurance from government that everything in their power is being done to get regeneration moving.

Anna tried to raise the issue directly with the Secretary of State in the chamber yesterday and secure a commitment at the despatch box but unfortunately wasn’t called.

Anna says that she hopes that the Secretary of State will provide the guarantee to Teesside in writing instead.
