Police in Redcar have arrested a man following a number of burglaries in Redcar.
Overnight on Tuesday into Wednesday this week, a number of burglaries were reported on William Street in the town.
A man was arrested however enquiries are still ongoing.
Police community support officers were out in the area yesterday morning conducting house to house enquiries and reassurance patrols in the area.
Anyone with information about the burglaries should contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Drivers in Redcar are being reminded about the potential penalties for illegal parking on the seafront.
Ignorant parking on the seafront Esplanade often increases as the weather gets warmer.
Such parking limits pedestrian access and can be a serious safety concern.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is now reminding drivers there are plenty of nearby parking spaces and Civil Enforcement Officers will not hesitate in issuing fixed penalty notices of £70 to those who park on the Esplanade.
A full list of pay-and-display car parks can be found at: www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/parking.
The carriages have been returned to Saltburn Tramway as restoration work continues.
The historic tramway has been closed for repairs and renovation work to ensure it can be enjoyed by holiday-makers for generations to come.
The anticipated re-opening has been delayed due to severe weather earlier in the year and and to enable additional engineering works to be carried out which are designed to ensure future disruption is kept to a minimum.
The refurbishment work, which is costing more than £500,000, is being completed in a sympathetic way that remains true to the heritage of the tramway.
No date has yet been set for the tramway reopening.
