A man accused of an alleged aggravated burglary that left a pensioner with serious injuries is set to stand trial.

Mark Lloyd, 38, faces three charges in connection with the incident on Henry Taylor Court, Ormesby, on January 27. Lloyd, of Broadwell Road, Easterside, appeared at Teesside Crown Court where he denied aggravated burglary, assault and having a bladed article.

A trial date of July 15 was set by a judge and Lloyd was remanded in custody.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are reassuring parents that school place allocations haven't been affected by recent IT problems.

Today is National Offer Day, when parents are informed at which secondary school their child will be offered a place.

Zetland FM's Stuart Clarkson has said: "The Council had previously warned parents that there may be a short delay to the allocation, however it now says that IT and education staff have worked around the clock to run the allocation process as normal and parents and carers will now receive their allocations on time".

The Council says that staff will be allocating the places by the National Offer Day on March 2 and the offer letters will be issued on time.

They also do not expect any disruption to the primary admissions round and anticipate that they will be making offers on primary National Offer Day which is April 16th.

The Council is continuing to make significant progress in returning to full functionality and is doing all it can to minimise any disruption or delays to the public."

 

Delays are expected as roadworks on Flatts Lane begin today.

Traffic lights will be placed at the junction as it comes through the Eston Hills to meet the A171 Guisborough bypass, and could see nearly four months of congestion.

Flatts Lane will be closed to traffic in phases while roadworks are completed, with lane closures being implemented on the bypass.

Redcar and Cleveland Council are carrying out the works with funding from the Department for Transport. The work will see the junction widened and traffic lights put in place.
