Vandals have caused damage at a local sporting venue.
Redcar racecourse has been left facing an extensive job of repair and a bill for around £1,000 after vandals broke in on Tuesday and caused damage to fencing.
Around two furlongs of safety rail at the top of the straight was damaged.
Redcar raced behind closed doors three times in June but its next meeting is not until July 27.
Anyone with information about the incident contact Cleveland Police.
Police have recovered suspected Class A Drugs following a positive stop and search in Middlesbrough.
On Wednesday, officers from the Middlesbrough Neighbourhood Policing Team arrested a 50-year-old man after a quantity of suspected class A drugs were recovered.
Following a stop search of the man on Eshwood Square in the Newport area officers recovered a quantity of suspected heroin.
This subsequently led to the search of an address on the same road, where a further two arrests were made.
A 54-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
All three have now been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
A local hospital trust has thanked the community for their support during COVID-19.
18,000 Easter eggs, 20,000 bottles of water and a batch of scotch eggs are just some of the items donated to the South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust during the coronavirus pandemic.
As well as receiving thousands of items, including food, PPE and scrubs, South Tees Hospitals Charity has also received close to £130,000. This includes money from Captain Tom Moore, NHS Charities Together and almost £35,000 which was donated locally.
A spokeswoman from South Tees Hospitals Charity said the donations had been a big boost to staff morale, and encouraged members of the public take part in a special clap to say thank you to everyone who has helped the NHS respond to coronavirus.
The national applause will take place on Sunday at 5pm.
