Speeding drivers in our area are being warned to expect to hear from the police.

At the request of local residents, neighbourhood officers carried out a speed watch in Lingdale yesterday.

A number of drivers were driving in excess of 30mph and officers are in the process of contacting them.

Police say they will be continuing to monitor speeding motorists in East Cleveland.

 

A secondary school in our area has been named as the best performing school on Teesside based on GCSE results.

Outwood Academy Bydales in Marske scored 59.1 points per pupil using the Attainment 8 measure in the 2018 GCSEs according to figures released by the Department for Education.

The average for pupils across England was 46.4.

It was also the school where pupils made the most progress between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4, based on Progress 8 scores.

The school’s Progress 8 score was 0.76 - well above average compared to other schools across England.

 

People in Redcar are being urged to help mark 100 years since the end of the First World War after it was chosen to be part of a national commemoration.

Danny Boyle’s Armistice “thank you” will see folk gathering on beaches across the UK on November 11 to etch the faces of the millions of people whose lives were lost or changed forever by the First World War.

And Redcar beach is one of just a handful across the country to be picked to take part in the project being produced by the film director and producer of the London Olympic opening ceremony.

Pages Of The Sea is described as an “informal, nationwide gesture of remembrance for the men and women who left their home shores during the First World War.

A large-scale portrait of a casualty from the First World War, designed by sand artists, will also be drawn in the sand in many of the locations and washed away as the tide comes in.
