A major road out of our area was closed for almost four hours yesterday evening following a multi-vehicle accident.
Emergency services were called to the A172 at around 3.30 yesterday afternoon after three vehicles were involved in a crash close to Ingleby Arncliffe.
Fire crews from Northallerton, Stokesley, Yarm and Thornaby attended the scene and a number of people were removed from the vehicles using hydraulic cutting equipment.
One vehicle was reported to have overturned on the single lane stretch of the A172, between Stokesley and the Cleveland Tontine junction of the A19.
It is not known whether anyone was seriously injured in the incident.
The Coastguard has issued a warning about the dangers of taking selfies close to a cliff edge.
On Sunday four people were spotted taking photographs at Huntcliff in Saltburn.
The four were spotted around 5.45pm on Sunday standing extremely close to the cliff edge taking selfies.
The Redcar Coastguard Rescue Team responded immediately to the cliff tops and found the four people taking ‘selfies’ on the cliff edge.
They were promptly requested to come back from the cliff edge and told about the dangers of the potential for the cliffs being undermined and that they could have given way without warning.
Eston is getting a deep clean today as part of a council's scheme to look after our area.
The neighbourhood team from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council with be carrying out the deep clean on streets around Eston from 9am to 2pm.
The deep clean is part of the council's 'Love It' campaign which aims to get members of the public to take a pride in the area they live in.
Further details of the deep clean can be found on the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council Facebook page, or by calling 01642 774774.
