Police in Redcar have made two arrests after an incident on the High Street at the weekend.
On Saturday officers from the Redcar Neighbourhood Policing team were called to an incident at Santander where an adult male and female were removed from the store for being verbally abusive to staff.
Checks on the male showed he was wanted on suspicion of theft from three different stores, leading to him being arrested and taken to custody.
Investigations are ongoing and police are investigating CCTV footage and taking statements.
Road traffic police have recovered a stolen quad bike following a pursuit in the early hours of Saturday.
Officers from the Cleveland and Durham road policing unit assisted colleagues from North Yorkshire Police in the hunt for a stolen quad bike.
The vehicle was seen coming into Cleveland and waspursued by numerous units.
It managed to avoid one stinger device before an officer managed to successfully sting the quad on the A174 Parkway near to Greystones roundabout.
However this didnt stop the vehicle which almost immediately went offroad and into Grangetown, where it was abandoned.
Despite the best efforts of police dog handlers, the rider and passengers escaped.
However officers did recover the quad bike and stolen items which are now being investigated by the police forensic team and CID.
The oldest lifeboat in the world, the Zetland, will make her first journey for 55 years today.
The lifeboat will be temporarily leaving her home at the Zetland lifeboat museum on the Esplanade in Redcar to undergo a programme of sympathetic conservation, in order to preserve her structural integrity for generations to come.
Redcar’s historic lifeboat will be transported on a low loader to AV Dawson Ltd on the banks of the River Tees, where the conservation work will take place.
The last time the Zetland lifeboat left Redcar was in 1963, to be taken to an International Lifeboat Conference in Edinburgh.
The project has been organised by the Friends of Zetland Lifeboat, and has been made possible by fundraising and donations by the charity’s supporters.
