Police have confirmed that there are no suspicious circumstances after the body of a man was found in Redcar.
Police were called to an address on Lord Street in the town shortly after 11am on Saturday morning, where the body of a 36 year old man was discovered.
Now after carrying out detailed examinations Cleveland Police have ruled that the death was not suspicious.
A file will now be prepared and passed over to the coroner who will aim to establish how the man died.
A large national retailer could be coming soon to a new shopping development in Redcar.
Work has begun to develop the former petrol station site into a four-unit mini retail complex, alongside Roseberry Shopping Centre on Roseberry Road.
Developers say there are a number of companies interested in the site, including a large national operator, which could potentially snap up the entire space.
Roseberry Shopping Centre already has an Sainsbury’s Local, and Asda Local and a branch of Domino's pizza among others.
The development will be ready towards the end of the year, and will also have around 30 car parking spaces.
People with a passion for Redcar and Cleveland are being sought to promote the borough to attract more businesses and visitors to the area.
A free networking breakfast is being held next Friday, the 29th June, 7:45am at Redcar Racecourse, to promote the new Redcar and Cleveland Ambassador scheme and to encourage attendees to act as the salesforce for the borough by becoming an Ambassador.
The breakfast, aimed at businesses (from sole traders to conglomerates), voluntary/community groups, public sector organisations and education/training providers, will include presentations from experts in tourism and culture, the opportunity to build contacts and to learn more about the new campaign to market the borough to the world.
Frans Calje, the Chief Executive of PD Ports and Chair of the Redcar and Cleveland Place board, told Zetland FM why we need to promote our area.
