It's emerged that a girl has been left with potentially life changing injuries after a horror crash in Redcar while a second teenager has also been seriously injured.
The pair were involved in a crash at around 4am on last Sunday when a black Vauxhall Corsa was travelling towards Redcar where it collided with a marked police van on Grewgrass Lane at New Marske, causing the car to flip on its side and set alight.
Details of the teenager's injuries have now been confirmed after the police watchdog The Independent Office for Police Conduct revealed it is now investigating the crash.
Both teenagers in the car and two Cleveland Police officers were taken to hospital for treatment, the two officers since being discharged.
During their investigation, the watchdog will seek statements from those who were present, as well as reviewing video footage and communications from the incident.
The IOPC is also appealing to members of the public who may have witnessed the incident to get in touch.
Boris Johnson was in Redcar yesterday during a visit to our area.
The Prime Minister was pictured on the Esplanade enjoying a Pacitto's lemon top with Redcar MP Jacob Young, and was also seen chatting to members of the public close to the Redcar Beacon.
He also paid a visit to the Redcar RNLI lifeboat station where he spoke to members of the lifeboat crew about how busy the lifeboat station at Redcar has been and if things were going well.
During his time on Teesside, Mr Johnson also visited Stockton in order to push the government’s 'Way to Work' campaign, which is trying to get 500,000 people into jobs by the end of June.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have announced that there will be no refuse collections this coming Friday.
Due to the various street parties and road closures which are taking place during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the council's Waste and Recycling Team have had to make changes to their collection schedule.
However the only day that will be affected will be Friday 3rd June, when there will be no collections.
Instead, catch-up collections will take place the following week.
The Dunsdale Recycling Centre will be open as normal, and appointments can be booked via the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council website.
