Armed police have arrested two people after they were called to reports of a fight involving a machete.

Specialist officers were called to Netherfields Crescent in Cleveland Police at around 2am on Thursday.

They were told men were fighting in the street and there were concerns one of them had a weapon.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon and released under investigation while enquiries continue.

A 53-year-old man was arrested and later charged with obstructing police.

No injuries were reported.

 

Police have launched an appeal after several reports of farm burglaries around the Loftus area of East Cleveland.

Cleveland Police say they have received at least seven reports of farm buildings or shipping containers being targeted, with power tools, hand tools, a tractor and even frozen food being taken.

The break ins are believed to have taken place overnight on Wednesday into Thursday this week and it appears a group of people wearing balaclavas were involved.

Police say they are following several lines of enquiry including CCTV and scenes of crime, but are also appealing for anyone with information or who may have seen anything suspicious to contact Redcar CID via the non-emergency number 101.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has announced that it is to consider a car parking strategy which aims to improve car parking for residents, visitors and businesses across the borough.

The Council’s cabinet will meet on Tuesday 9th March to consider a number of proposals that will guide the management of the Council’s car parking between 2021 - 2024.

A number of the key proposals are well known issues to residents and have been drawn up to address the concerns. Some of the other proposals are new and will be subject to consultation with residents if agreed by Cabinet.

The overall strategy looks to support vital work to reduce carbon emissions in the borough by incentivising the use of electric vehicles.

Other key aims for the council are to make parking in and around retail centres as easy as possible, as well as introducing mobile parking apps and new cash-free ways of parking.
