A man has appeared in court accused of killing a grandad in a suspected shooting in East Cleveland.

Jamie Hellings has been charged with manslaughter over the death of 58-year-old Christopher Kay, who died in hospital on Friday afternoon after suffering serious chest injuries in an incident on Brotton Road in Carlin How.

His injuries are believed to have been caused by a firearm.

32-year-old Mr Hellings, of Coronation Road in Loftus, appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Appearing via video link and wearing a grey t-shirt, Mr Hellings spoke only to confirm his date of birth and address.

No pleas were entered and no further details about the case were given during the brief two minute hearing.

The case was transferred to Teesside Crown Court, where Mr Hellings will next appear on September 21st.

 

A local restaurant has closed after staff members experienced coronavirus symptoms and have been tested for the virus.

Traditional Italian themed restaurant Armando's on Redcar High Street announced its decision to close until further notice on Sunday.

The restaurant confirmed that two members of staff were tested for Covid-19 yesterday and are awaiting their results.

All bookings at the restaurant have now been cancelled.

 

A weekend of activity across our area as part of Operation Phoenix has resulted in illegal off-road bikes being dealt with.

Operation Phoenix is a summer-long operation to improve public service, help vulnerable people, tackle serious violence and prevent crime.

This weekend saw patrols carried out by officers, volunteers and Cleveland Fire Brigade colleagues on Eston Hills, in Dormanstown and Guisborough.

Several bikers were stopped on Eston Hills, whereby notices were given to riders causing antisocial behaviour.

These bikers were then escorted off the hills. If a second notice is issued to the same rider, the bike can then be seized.

The Fire Brigade also had a high visibility presence in the area, due to recent fires being started on the hills.
