Youngsters are being warned of the dangers of ‘tombstoning’ after a spate of incidents in our area.

Coastguards say that over the past month, youths have been jumping into the sea from sea walls and rocks in Skinningrove and other places all down the coast.

While it may seem safe, conditions at the coast can quickly change and jumpers can get seriously injured.

In October, a Middlesbrough man was pulled from a cave during a treacherous rescue mission - after he’d jumped around 100 feet from a cliff.

 

Metal production could be coming back to the site of Redcar’s former steelworks, Teesside Live can reveal.

A document relating to a 100,000 sq ft “aluminium casthouse facility” has been submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council.

The proposed development includes offices, a production area, scrap sorting bays, cooling water plants and other associated facilities.

It is not yet known how many jobs the scheme could create and no further details of the work the plant would carry out have been provided.

 

A well-known Teesside home for people with disabilities is being sold after 55 years by the national charity that runs it.

Leonard Cheshire says it has been a “difficult decision” to put its home at Marske Hall, Marske, up for sale.

In a letter to residents’ families, the charity says it is “confident they will find an appropriate high-quality organisation to run the service and invest in its long-term future”.

The home, which has 28 residents, opened in February 1963 with just six residents as part of a growing network inspired by former RAF pilot, Group Captain Sir Leonard Cheshire.

Since then, it has cared for and housed hundreds of disabled people.
