Police are appealing for information following an incident of animal cruelty in Redcar.

Whilst on patrol yesterday teatime, members of the Redcar Neighbourhood Police Team came across a Canadian Goose in Locke Park which had been injured.

Sadly the creature subsequently died.

Anyone with any information in relation to the incident is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101 and quote event number 163683.

 

The free 105 power cut number, which was launched two years ago, is continuing its strong performance and helping customers avoid potential confusion by ensuring they quickly get through to the correct local network operator first time when they have a power cut.

Northern Powergrid, the electricity distributor for our area has seen some 42% of its calls, reporting a power cut or an electricity network emergency, come through the three digit number since it was launched in September 2016.  

The national freephone number was launched after figures revealed that 72% of people didn’t know who to contact if they had a power cut, with a further 43% indicating that they would incorrectly call their electricity supplier, who they pay their bill to, when in fact they should contact their local electricity network operator.

 

Northern Rail has released details of its amended timetables for the latest round of RMT strike action this coming Saturday.

The strike action will see Northern running reduced timetables across the weekend.

On Saturday Northern expects to run around 30% of services with customers advised to plan carefully if they intend to travel on the rail network.

This weekend also sees a number of significant events taking place throughout the north of England and customers are reminded of the impact the amended timetables will have on travel to and from those events.
