A local MP is pressing the Government on commitments to deliver a direct rail link connecting our area to London King’s Cross.

MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has written to the Department for Transport to quiz Ministers over the promises made by Virgin Trains, which now lie with LNER.

Rail Minister Jo Johnson told the MP that the service would go ahead, but only when there is “sufficient capacity”.

In response, Anna said that Teesside is long overdue this infrastructure investment and Ministers must be doing all they can to make sure this is delivered by 2020 as planned.

She says that she will be keeping the pressure on when Parliament returns.

 

Police are appealing to trace a missing man from our area.

54-year-old David Bailey was last seen leaving an address on William Street in North Skelton at around twenty five to one in the morning on Saturday. 

He is described as being around 5ft 8” to 5ft 10” tall, and was wearing a puffer jacket and blue jeans. 

Anyone with information regarding David's whereabouts is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

With this year's Festival of Thrift only days away, the organisers are inviting people to join in the event's first ever launch parade to get the big Festival weekend started.

The launch parade, which will be the culmination of months of community workshops, projects and activity in the run up to the Festival, will take the Festival right to the heart of Redcar town centre on the evening of Friday 21 September.

Revellers will be entertained by a procession that starts with cyclists leaving Kirkleatham village, to be joined from the Community Heart by walkers at 6.30pm, all then heading to the seafront and ending at the bandstand for a musical finale.

The event will be a warm up to the Festival's big weekend celebration of sustainable living at Kirkleatham on 22 and 23 September.
