A local Conservative MP has told the prime minister he is not backing back her proposed Brexit deal.

Simon Clarke, the MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, has also let it be known that he has submitted a call for a vote of confidence in Teresa May's continued leadership.

Mr Clark addressed Teresa May in the House of Commons yesterday.

 

A man from our area is to appear before a crown court judge after being charged with attempted murder.

Teesside Magistrates' Court heard that Dean Keith Williams, of Oakley Walk, Bankfields, in Eston attempted to murder Lawrence Bennett.

The incident took place on Moorcock Close on the Bankfields estate on October 27.

The victim was said to have received serious injuries.

Williams, 29, appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court on October 29.

No plea was entered, and he was remanded in custody until his appearance at Teesside Crown Court on November 26.

 

Two major projects in Redcar and Cleveland have cleared the first hurdle in potentially gaining millions of Coastal Communities Fund grant funding, but Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is reminding people there is still a long way to go before any celebrations can take place.

Two expressions of interest have been submitted to the Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) – one by the Council for the Redcar Gateway Project and one by the Loftus Community Heritage Group to support the Arlington Innovation Centre.

The Redcar Gateway Project will focus on improving the Central Railway Station, with some further works encompassing Station Road including the Coatham Memorial Hall and development of the Regent Cinema building. The Redcar Gateway Project encompasses several key elements of the Council's ambitious Area Growth plans to bring in more visitors and increase trade in the town and is reflected in the application to CCF for £2.5 million with a further £4 million being sought elsewhere.

The Arlington Innovation Centre will see business units developed on the site of Loftus' Arlington Church to support small businesses. The application to CCF is for £435,000 with the Council committing a further £100,000 should the application be successful to create new business units.
