Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault which left a man with serious injuries in Redcar.

The incident occurred at around 11:30pm last Saturday on High Street West, where the 35-year-old victim was found unconscious with major head and facial injuries.

It is it believed he had been assaulted.

He received treatment at James Cook University Hospital for a fractured skull, fractured eye socket and other facial injuries, and has since been released.

Officers believe there was a party going on nearby on High Street West and would ask anyone who witnessed the incident to contact police.

Anyone with information or anyone who witnessed the assault is asked to contact DC Rebecca Taylor on the non-emergency 101 number, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has thanked local volunteers who have dedicated their spare time to collect bags of rubbish that have been left on the borough’s beaches.

This week’s heatwave has meant the seafronts at Redcar, Marske, Saltburn and Skinningrove have seen a large increase in visitors.

The majority of visitors respected the area and took their rubbish home, put it in a bin or left it beside a bin, but unfortunately a minority of people dumped their rubbish including nappies, takeaway boxes and barbecues, on the beaches, slipways and steps.

With the help of volunteers, Council staff have worked late into the evening emptying the bins and picking up litter at the seafronts.

This is despite the Council experiencing a shortness in staff due to members of the team continuing to self-isolate from Covid-19.

 

It's Armed Forces Day today, and local people are being asked to take a moment to remember all our servicemen and women.

Normally there would a major parade in Redcar as well as entertainment as thousands of people celebrate the day.

However, this year people are instead being asked to give thanks in their own way and can share messages – and their own ‘salute’ - on the Armed Forces Day website.

Many people have already shared images of themselves, family and friends saluting on the site.

Images can also be posted on the Armed Forces Day pages on Facebook and Twitter.
