Hundreds of workers in our area are facing an uncertain future after a Wilton bioethanol plant announced a "pause in production".

Ensus will halt all its manufacturing from the end of November following a drop in world ethanol prices, which it says have "significantly fallen in the last few days - contrary to all expectations".

It is not known when the plant will restart.

Around 90 staff work at the plant in Redcar but it also directly supports around 2,000 supply chain workers in areas from farming to haulage.

 

The coastguard has issued a warning to walkers after a section of the popular route collapsed

Scarborough and Burniston Coastguard Rescue Team issued an alert on Wednesday after a section of the Cleveland Way, close to Saltwick Bay, south of Whitby crumbled away due to coastal erosion.

Redcar and Cleveland Council has announced further checks would be carried out on specific cliffs and that additional warning signs will also be placed in risk areas.

 

People in the Tees Valley are being encouraged to help shape a unique research project which will capture the untold stories, memories and experiences of local people in the aftermath of the First World War.

Rememorial WWI: Narratives of Peace in the Tees Valley is being led by academics at Teesside University and will explore the local mood as the war ended and people lived through a multitude of emotions, experiencing a mixture of hope, despair, joy and fear.

The project focuses on the often over-looked period between the armistice of 11 November 1918, through to the formal end of the War when the Versailles Peace Treaty was signed on 28 June 1919 and Peace Day was declared on 19 July 1919. Rememorial WWI will preserve personal experiences of local people, alongside already known stories, examining themes including loss, unemployment, military injury, decline of industry, public protest, memorial and hope for the future.

To follow the progress of Rememorial WWI, you can find the project on twitter @RememorialWWI, or visit www.RememorialWWI.org.
