Police are appealing for information after an attempted robbery at the Post Office on Birchington Avenue in Eston.

The incident happened at around 10:25am yesterday, when a suspect wearing black/dark clothing entered the store with a kitchen knife.

No one was injured as a result of the incident and the suspect left the Post Office empty handed.

Any witnesses or anyone with information or dash cam footage of the incident is asked to contact Detective Constable James Garrett from Redcar and Cleveland CID on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Plans have been drawn up to safely reopen Redcar and Cleveland’s high streets and to give more space to cyclists and pedestrians as lockdown eases. 

The Council has received two pots of funding from Government to allow members of the public to have more space and stay within social distancing rules.

More than £121,000 will be dedicated to adapting the borough’s main high streets and beach fronts so visitors, shoppers and businesses can be assured of their safety and to make being out and about in the borough’s town centres as pleasant as possible. 

Initially, the public will see measures such as new signs, street markings and temporary barriers to help people keep their distance.

The Council is also consulting with local businesses in the borough’s busiest places such as Guisborough, Redcar and Saltburn to see if and what further physical changes need to be implemented in the coming weeks.

 

Homeowners are being reminded not to pay rogue traders to take away waste or you could be the one facing a fine of £400.00.

Residents in Redcar and Cleveland are being urged to protect themselves and the environment from illegal waste carriers who are targeting householders in the area for the removal of rubbish.

Unlicensed carriers often dump waste along country lanes or in farmers’ fields, leaving the cost of removal and disposal with the landowner or the Council.

Now the council has issued a reminder that if fly-tipped waste is traced back to the homeowner, they can incur a fine of up to £400.00 even when they have paid someone in good faith to take it away.
