Visitors to a popular seaside town in our area are being urged to park their cars responsibly or face the consequences.

Redcar and Cleveland Council say their officers are out on patrol in Saltburn and will not hesitate to issue tickets and fines to drivers who flout parking regulations.

The reminder comes after pictures on social media showed examples of particularly poor parking in the town at the weekend - including two cars left on the difficult 'S' bend in the middle of steep Saltburn Bank.

Others had left their vehicles on pavements in areas meant for pedestrians and crammed into narrow alleyways.

Redcar and Cleveland Council is responsible for enforcing parking regulations and say they will involve the police if roads are being dangerously obstructed.

 

The Redcar Coastguard Team have been called into action in our area.

Just after 3pm on Monday the team were tasked by CGOC Humber operations room at Bridlington to reports of people cut off by the tide at the West Scar in Redcar.

However the team was stood down on route to the incident.

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.

 

A patient was taken to hospital after a nasty smash involving three cars and a lorry between Whitby and Middlesbrough.

The A171 was temporarily closed near Ugthorpe after a serious accident at around 3.30pm on Monday.

The road was completely blocked as 999 services dealt with the incident, as big traffic queues formed.

Drivers were forced to divert via the A174 coastal road as the emergency services worked at the scene.
