Police are reminding members of the public to keep their valuables out of sight or remove them from their vehicles after a number of thefts from vehicles.

Officers say that since November 1st, there have been 33 reports of thefts from vehicles in the Redcar area.

Items including everything from small change and sweets to hand bags, phones and gym bags have been stolen.

Primarily, the offences have taken place in the evening through to the early hours and have occurred right across the borough, with Kirkleatham, Dormanstown and St Germains having been targeted the highest number of times.

Any witnesses or anyone with information regarding the incidents is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A failing Redcar secondary school has had its funding stopped after the trust it belonged to failed to make sufficient improvements.

Rye Hills Academy on Redcar Lane was warned that it would have its funding terminated unless the Nunthorpe Multi Academy Trust which oversees it could drastically improve the school.

The trust was asked to consider the transfer to another multi-academy trust in the region, but earlier this year the trust's board decided it was not going to pursue that option.

However, it has now been confirmed that the Department of Education has decided to terminate funding, with the school expected to be transferred to another trust no later than June 1, next year.

 

The volunteers of the Redcar RNLI were called into action in our area yesterday.

At 1 o'clock yesterday morning both lifeboats were launched to search for a missing person near the River Tees.

A short time later the person was found safe ashore and the lifeboats and crew were able to return to the lifeboat station.
