The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area after a man was injured at Roseberry Topping.
The 33-year-old man had injured his left ankle whilst near to the summit of Roseberry Topping, and was unable to walk.
Team members made their way to Roseberry Topping and located the casualty who by that time had started to slowly move down from the summit assisted by two friends.
His ankle was strapped up by Team members, he was given some pain relief and then placed on a mountain rescue stretcher in order to more easily complete the descent by being carried and taken down the hill.
A Team Land Rover was then used to transport him back to the farm where he was met by his friends to take him to hospital for further treatment.
Police are appealing to trace a driver following a collision in Middlesbrough.
The collision took place on Gypsy Lane, near to the Brunton Arms Public House, in Nunthorpe, around 3:50pm last Thursday.
The driver of the vehicle did stop at the scene, however, his details were not left.
He is described as a white male, aged in his fifties, and the vehicle is believed to be a silver Hyundai.
An 18-year-old male pedestrian suffered a broken wrist and cuts and was taken to James Cook University Hospital for treatment.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
Work has begun to transform the iconic Steel House into a new base for the full redevelopment of the 4,500-acre site.
The building has been a significant landmark in our area since it was opened in 1978 as the former headquarters of British Steel for its Redcar steelworks operation.
The main six storey building and the connected data centre have been mothballed since the closure of the SSI Steelworks in October 2015 but will now be given a new lease of life.
To kick-start the project, work has begun to strip the building, remove more than 3,500 pieces of redundant furniture and equipment and establish safe zones to allow surveyors and architects to investigate the condition of the building ahead of further remediation.
It is planned that this initial clearance and survey work will take three to six months, with works continuing over the following 18 to 24 months, by which time the first tenants are expected to arrive at Steel House.
