Police in Redcar have been dealing with anti-social behaviour in the town over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Neighbourhood policing officers responded to a number of calls about large groups of youths being a nuisance and verbally abusive towards staff in the town's McDonalds and Tesco stores.
When the group were approached on Thrush Road, one male youth who appeared to be heavily under the influence was verbally abusive towards officers and refused to stop, making off in the back alleys.
He was later sighted entering a restaurant on the High Street where officers apprehended him.
The youth was arrested for being drunk and disorderly and assault a police officer.
Police have now increased their visibility patrols during half-term week, and say that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.
The family of a man who was killed in a collision in Ormesby at the weekend have paid tribute to him.
69-year-old John Byrne died following a collision on Ormesby Road on Saturday.
Speaking yesterday, his family described Mr Byrne as a loving father and a special granddad.
They said he was a true Boro fan, he was full of character and was a funny, outgoing and a true gentleman with a heart of gold.
The family have requested privacy at this time to enable them to grieve.
Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were in action in our area yesterday.
At around 4.30 yesterday afternoon a 13 yr old girl who was out for the day with her family and friends from Richmond, stumbled near the top of Roseberry Topping and injured her leg.
The people with her gave her first aid and some improvised bandaging, before rescue team members arrived and administered pain relief.
They then cleaned and dressed the girl's wound before transporting her in a Landrover Ambulance back to the family car at Newton under Roseberry where she was then taken to hospital.
18 team members attended and the incident lasted for around 50 mins.
