An operation has been carried out to tackle gangs travelling to Teesside and harvesting cockles on Redcar beach and at South Gare.

Police and partners carried out the action yesterday after receiving intelligence about people visiting the area to harvest cockles and other shellfish.

Authorities say reports were made of large groups of people travelling into the area and being sighted cockle-picking

Cockles found in the Redcar and Cleveland area are not fit for human consumption and eating them could cause severe illness and could be be potentially fatal for children.

Information will now be passed to the Food Standards Agency for further investigation.

 

A fly-tipper has been caught red handed dumping an old mattress, complete with fitted bed sheet, in an alleyway.

The Mercedes flat back truck driver was caught on CCTV with an accomplice making the illegal deposit on Kreuger Alley on June 15.

The North Ormesby location has long been a hotspot for fly tipping with the issue a nightmare for residents.

Middlesbrough Council's Environmental Enforcement team acted quickly to trace the owner of the truck who when invited for formal interview admitted the offence.

He has now been given a fixed penalty of £200, reduced to £120 if paid within 10 days.

 

Councillors have approved changes to a local pavilion building which forms part of a popular tourist attraction.

The Bellamy Pavilion at Kirkleatham Hall and Museum, in Kirkleatham, on the outskirts of Redcar, regularly hosts exhibitions, conferences and education sessions.

It comprises a glazed roof which allows sunlight to filter through - causing the building to become extremely hot during summer months.

The existing roof will now be replaced with a new slate appearance which will have 106 solar panels set into it.
