Redcar and Cleveland Council is forecasting a significantly better financial position in it's report to the Cabinet, reducing it's overspend from 4.2 million pounds to 1.4 million into next year, a saving of 2.8 million pounds.

The report findings are discussed at a meeting on December the 11th, and outline improvements that have been made despite the fact the Council has seen its central Government support grant decrease by £4.1m this year alone.

The authority has set itself a target to reduce its overspending completely and deliver a balanced budget position by the end the financial year in March 2019 without making any further job cuts or reducing key services.

It says efficiencies have been achieved by a strong corporate approach to financial management, which included the refinancing of loans to reduce interest payments and more opportunities to generate commercial income.

 

The condition of a 46 year old man who was discovered with stab injuries to his legs in Grangetown on Thursday morning is said to be improving.

He was found on Tawney Rd near to Barmouth Grove and Cleveland Police initially described the male as being in a critical condition, but have since revealed he is now stable.

A cordon was erected whilst detectives investigated the scene and they revealed the attacker is believed to be known to the victim.

Anyone with information regarding the incident, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101 quoting event number 218347 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
