An inquest has heard how a motorbike rider died when he collided with a metal barrier at an accident blackspot in our area.

Rod Byers from Jarrow in County Durham lost control of his Suzuki motorbike as he was riding down Birk Brow on the A171 just outside of Guisborough.

The 70-year-old was airlifted to James Cook University Hospital but died of his injuries following the accident on April 15th this year.

Teesside Coroners Court heard how the pensioner seemed to lose control of his bike on a sharp bend before coming off on the gravel and hitting his head on the ground.

Assistant Teesside Coroner Jo Wharton recorded that the retired heavy goods vehicle driver died as the result of a road traffic collision.

 

Parts of Teesside lost power yesterday evening, just before kick off in the England game.

Northern Powergrid confirmed the outage around 6.45pm. with postcodes in TS1, TS3 and TS4 reported as having been affected.

Power was restored to most properties within an hour, with almost all customers seeing their power returning by around 8.15.

 

Cleveland Police are reminding the public that their summer anti-drink and drug drive campaign is continuing, with a number of people arrested so far across both Cleveland and Durham.

Drink and drugs are one of the main contributing factors in many serious collisions.

The campaign is running throughout the World Cup tournament, during which time police officers will be out and about in our area proactively stopping drivers.

Police advice is that if you are planning on having a drink to make sure you have a designated driver or get a taxi home.
