A new £3million state-of-the-art on-demand bus service has been launched across the region's most isolated communities.

The Tees Flex service sees a fleet of nine new, high-quality Mercedes Sprinter buses hit the roads of the rural parts of Redcar & Cleveland.

Tees Flex can be booked via a smartphone app, a website or over the telephone.

 

Cleveland Police has been granted almost £40,000 for Tasers from the Home Office.

The bid, which was submitted by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), requested funding for 48 Taser weapons.

The Home Office has now revealed that the OPCC will get its full request of £39,600 to pass on to the Force.

Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger asked for the public’s thoughts on Taser ahead of submitting the bid and some of the responses formed part of the application.

 

Passenger rail services could return to East Cleveland for the first time in 50 years.

Redcar and Cleveland Council has commissioned a study to see "how feasible" a regular service would be on the line used by the Boulby freight train.

Campaigners say it's a "unique journey that people will want to take"- linking communities and boosting the area's tourism.

The route itself takes in stunning scenery, along the cliffs between Carlin Howe and Brotton.
