A man has been taken to hospital after being trapped by a landslide whilst collecting fossils on a beach in our area.

Staithes Coastguard Rescue team were paged at around quarter past eight on Saturday evening following reports that a man who had been collecting fossils had been trapped in a landslide at Port Mulgrave.

The casualty had been buried up to his waist and trapped by mud and debris.

When the team arrived to the casualty, they had been dug from the mud by fishermen and moved to a place of safety.

Coastguard team members worked with Paramedics from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to stabilise the casualty, assess injuries and provide pain relief.

The casualty was kept warm and as comfortable as possible prior to being transferred to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

 

Neighbourhood Police Officers in Redcar have arrested a man on suspicion of theft at the weekend.

In the early hours of Saturday morning a 31 year old man was arrested on suspicion of theft after he was found to be in posession of various items.

Posting on their Facebook page, officers from the Redcar Neighbourhood Policing Team said that the man had also been spotted trying car door handles in the Redcar area.

Anyone with information about crime can contact Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

 

MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has written to the Chancellor ahead of the Budget this week to secure assurances that funding for the regeneration of the site remains a government priority.

Three years have passed since the closure of the steelworks and, despite interest from more than 100 investors and a masterplan to create 20,000 jobs, a single job has yet to be created.

In her letter Anna seeks assurances from the Chancellor that the government are doing everything in their power to support the ongoing negotiations with the Thai banks, that the South Tees Development Corporation has adequate financial powers to deliver on the masterplan, and that the government will be making a funding commitment for the clean-up of the site.
