Police are warning members of the public to be vigilant following reports of men knocking on people’s doors and claiming that their homes need their roof or guttering fixing.

Two properties have been targeted on Hummerhill Lane in Marske with one resident handing over a small amount of cash and another resident handing over £1,000. Both victims are aged in their 70’s.

Officers received the reports on Tuesday and it is believed three men are responsible for the incidents. One of the men is described as being a white male, of large build with short, frizzy hair and aged in his late 20s to early 30s.

It is believed the men are travelling in a van – possibly with the registration beginning in NA08.

Police are warning the public to be vigilant in a bid to prevent people from becoming victim to fraudulent scams.

Anyone with information regarding the men is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called in to action in our area to rescue two teenage girls.

The team were contacted by North Yorkshire Police shortly after midnight yesterday to assist with the two girls who were reportedly stuck on Roseberry Topping, having become detached from other friends and unable to find their way due to fog.

Very soon after that the Team received a similar call from the North East Ambulance Service.

Team members were called out from home and their two Land Rover ambulances were deployed. Fortunately police officers managed to find the girls just to the east of Roseberry Topping. The 'what3words' app was used to identify the location so that four Team members could reach them using the two Land Rovers, taking a paramedic with them. The girls were assessed but no treatment was required at the scene. 

The girls were then transported off the hill by Land Rover following which police officers dealt with them to ensure they got to a place of safety.

 

Lifeguards will return to Saltburn beach this weekend, as the RNLI continues to step up its lifesaving service across the region.

Since lockdown restrictions were eased last month, the RNLI has worked hard to roll out lifeguard patrols on 47 beaches in the UK, including at Whitby.

Now these beaches are operational and new ways of working and equipment have been properly put to the test, the RNLI is accelerating its service roll-out and increasing the number of beaches which will have a lifeguard service.

The charity is hoping to have lifeguards on around 170 beaches by early July - 70 per cent of the beaches it would patrol in a normal summer.
