Police have issued an appeal for the public's help after an alleged incident at a car boot sale in Redcar at the weekend.
Two females, one 21 years old and one a juvenile, are in custody following an alleged incident at the car boot sale at Redcar racecourse on Thrush Road yesterday afternoon.
A woman reported that her 2-year-old child was walking next to a family member when two females approached the child and tried to walk away with her.
When challenged, they reportedly released the child and were detained.
Enquiries are on-going and police would appeal for any information regarding this alleged incident or regarding the females reported to be involved - especially in the period prior to 2.15pm.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Officers are appealing for information after early morning collision near New Marske yesterday.
At approximately five to four yesterday morning two police officers were in a stationary marked police van with blue lights on, accompanying a recovery truck at the side of the road on Grewgrass Lane near New Marske as they'd just removed a quad bike found abandoned there.
A black Vauxhall Corsa travelling down Grewgrass Lane in the direction of Redcar collided with the police vehicle, injuring both officers.
The Corsa then flipped onto its side and started to set alight but other attending officers got the male driver and female passenger - who are both 18 - out of the vehicle.
Ambulance staff attended and both officers were taken to hospital to be checked; one for injuries to his wrist, arm and leg and one for potential whiplash.
The Corsa driver was taken to James Cook University Hospital with a suspected pelvic injury and his passenger was also taken there for treatment to burns, a suspected dislocated and fractured shoulder and possible broken pelvis.
Police are appealing for anyone with information or dashcam footage which could assist their inbestigation to contact them on 101.
The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were called into action twice over the weekend.
Just before 6.30 on Friday evening the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched following a report of swimmer in trouble in the water off Majuba Road beach.
Swimmer was fine and did not need assistance.
Then on Saturday at 3.20 in the morning, the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to assist with a reported incident on the River Tees.
Police resolved the incident and the lifeboat returned safely to the boathouse.
The public are reminded that if you think you see someone in trouble in the water always call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
