Emergency services were called following an incident Huntcliff in Saltburn yesterday.

Several police units as well as the the Coastguard lifeboat attended the scene at around half-past midday.

A police car was parked at the top of the cliffs, and other emergency vehicles were parked up in The Ship Inn car park.

Personnel wearing hi-vis jackets were also seen walking along the beach at the foot of the cliffs.

The coastguard has confirmed that the lifeboat was called out but has not been able to give any further details about the nature of the incident.

 

Police have arrested a man and recovered suspected class B drugs in Middlesbrough.

Two plain-clothed officers on patrol in the Grove Hill area on Thursday spotted a vehicle with three males inside who were reportedly acting suspiciously.

The officers stopped the males and searched all three, one of whom was allegedly in possession of a large amount of cannabis.

A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs. He has since been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.

A second male was given a warning for possession of cannabis.

Following the stop, officers also searched an address on Ottawa Road in Grove Hill, where drugs paraphernalia and cash were recovered.

 

It's been announced that free parking will be available in town centres across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool in the new year to make it easier, cheaper and more convenient for people to support their high streets.

Free parking for a minimum of two hours up to a maximum of three hours will be available in council-run car parks in each of the five Tees Valley main town centres – Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Stockton, as well as a number of car parks in Guisborough and Yarm. 

The free town centre parking will be introduced from January to encourage more people to support shops, cafes and other businesses in their town centres and high streets when coronavirus restrictions allow them to safely do so. 

All five local authorities approved the introduction of free parking yesterday morning. As part of the scheme, the revenue local authorities receive from car parking charges will be compensated, so none of them will be financially impacted and no local services will be affected. Funding for the free parking scheme has been allocated for two years.
