Two men who led police on a terrifying high speed chase after robbing a woman in our area have been jailed.

Yesterday, 28-year-old Terence Smith of Fransham Road in Middlesbrough was sentenced to 9 years and 7 months in prison for robbery and deliberately driving into a police vehicle in an attempt to escape from officers.

His passenger, 26-year-old Dale Carter of Linmoor Avenue in Middlesbrough, was sentenced to 42 months in prison for committing a robbery earlier on the same day.

A court how on the 22nd December last year the pair robbed a 51-year-old woman after following her from a cash point in Guisborough.

She was dragged to the floor during the incident and had her handbag stolen containing cash, bank cards and her phone.

Smith and Carter made off from police across the A19 Tees flyover later that evening, and rammed a police car, leaving two officers injured and affected psychologically.

Thankfully, a crash barrier stopped their vehicle from plunging 66 feet over the edge of the bridge onto waste ground below.

 

The Police Off Road bikes have been out and about in our area looking for nuisance bikes causing anti social behaviour.

Yesterday that were in the Dormanstown, Kirkleatham and Coatham areas of Redcar targeting those who ride dangerously, are uninsured and endanger the public.

Anyone with information relating to nuisance vehicles can contact the non-emergency number 101, contact their local neighbourhood police team or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

 

Free re-usable aluminium water bottles are now available at two local visitors’ centres.

Flatts Lane Woodland Country Park and Guisborough Forest Walkway Visitor Centres have 500 aluminium water bottles to give out, free of charge throughout July, in exchange for just six empty single-use plastic water bottles.

To pick up a free aluminium water bottle, just bring six empty single-use plastic water bottles to either Flatts Lane Woodland Country Park and Guisborough Forest Walkway Visitor Centres in July.

One exchange is permitted per person.
