Police are appealing for information after four properties were burgled and one was victim to an attempted burglary on William Street in Redcar.

The incidents occurred on Wednesday 13th June at around 4:30am.

All the occupants were home at the time of the burglaries which led to an alternation between the offenders and a 66-year-old woman in one property and a 78-year-old woman was trapped in a room in another property.

Two people have been arrested in connection with the burglaries.

A 36-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of burglary, attempt burglary, false imprisonment and for assaulting two police officers.

One of the officers has received treatment for multiple fractures to his hand as a result of the assault.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who saw people acting suspiciously at the time of the burglaries to contact Detective Sergeant Emma Kensey on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Both Redcar lifeboats were launched yesterday morning following reports of an incident at Saltburn.

The RNLI crews responded to a request from Cleveland Police shortly after 10 o'clock yesterday morning.

The lifeboats proceeded to carry out a search of the area at the foot of Huntcliff at Saltburn.

Sadly a short time later the body of a fatally injured person was recovered from the base of the cliffs.

The lifeboats then returned to shore.

 

The volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were in action on Wednesday evening, this time it was to carry someone UP Roseberry Topping.

The Team discovered that one of their supporters, Keith Stubbs, who is 71 and has mobility issues due to a rare muscle wasting condition, regretted that when he was fit enough he had never managed to walk up Roseberry Topping.

The team decided to help Keith achieve his goal and carried Keith to the top of the local landmark using one of their specialist stretchers.

Once at the top, Keith took the time to catch the views across to the Cleveland Hills and down into the Tees Valley.

Keith thanked everyone for the experience and the achievement was 'toasted' at the top before team undertook their much more familiar practice of carrying him back downhill.
