Police had to disperse a large number of people from an illegal rave in our area at the weekend.

On Saturday evening officers dispersed more than 200 people from the rave in a wooded area in Eston with the assistance of the National Police Air Service.

A police spokeswoman told Zetland FM that the incident was unacceptable and the police will not tolerate illegal raves happening in the area.

She said that raves like these pose potential safety concerns for those attending, are illegal and attending such an event places an unnecessary burden on the NHS.

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing.

 

A busy roundabout in our area will be affected by roadworks this week.

The works mean that drivers cannot access two of Middlesbrough's most-used roads from the busy Swans Corner roundabout.

From today, Northern Gas Networks are carrying out gas pipe diversion work to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in Nunthorpe.

It will involve digging in the road to move the gas pipework to allow for road widening on the roundabout of the A171 and the A1043.

The roadworks mean that drivers cannot access two of Middlesbrough's most-used roads from the busy Swans Corner roundabout.

The essential work is expected to last until Friday.

 

The Redcar Coastguard rescue team were called into action at the weekend.

Just after 2.30 on Saturday afternoon the Redcar team were tasked by the Humber operations room at Bridlington following reports of people cut off by the tide at Saltburn.

Whilst the team were assembling word came through that the people involved had managed to get to safety and the team was stood down.

Members of the public are reminded that if you see anyone in trouble on the beach or cliffs you should dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
