It came after the discovery of two mortars and shells at a house on Bennison Street in Guisborough yesterday afternoon.

Army bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion on the devices on land off Wilton Lane at around 6.30 yesterday evening.

Police have thanked local residents for their co-operation and understanding.

 

The Environment Agency has responded following reports of a strong odour around Redcar.

The agency says that during the last week it has received over 100 calls from local residents in and around Redcar who were concerned about the smell.

Northumbrian Water have now taken remedial action to deal with a problem at their treatment works Bran Sands.

It is believed that the issue has now been resolved, anyone with any further issues is advised to contact the Environment Agency's incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60.

 

New mothers got together to take part in a global event to encourage breastfeeding at the weekend.

Dozens of mums and their babies and children from Redcar and Cleveland all met up at Kirkleatham Museum and Grounds, near Redcar as part of The Global Big Latch On event.

The event was part of National Breastfeeding Week where the mothers and their families enjoyed a picnic in the grounds after feeding their babies at the exact same time as other mums across the world at 10.30am, on Saturday.

It was organised by the mothers themselves but the council’s Early Help team is encouraging more mums in the area to breastfeed, if it is possible.
