Police are appealing for information after a collision on Marske High Street.
At around 7.20pm on Thursday a white Ford Fiesta was travelling along the High Street towards the A174, with a blue off-road Yamaha motorbike travelling in the same direction.
As the Ford began to turn right, into the entrance to the Co-op and Leisure Centre, the bike collided with the front offside of the car and the rider fell to the ground.
He suffered a broken kneecap and was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he was kept in.
Any witnesses - or anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage - are asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council’s planning committee has approved proposals to transform Duncan Place in Loftus.
The historic building, where the youth and community centre is currently located, will be renovated to create a facility for the town which will bring together several council services within one improved building.
This includes the relocation of Loftus library into a new extension of the building, with a small refreshment counter, alongside revitalised spaces for youth and family activities including a brand-new community hall.
Works are expected to begin in September with a completion date of July 2023.
It's Armed Forces Day in Redcar today.
The annual commemoration of those who serve in our armed forces returns with a programme of events in Redcar High Street.
The official opening of the event will take place at Redcar Town Clock at 10.20am, with the parade marching from Moore Street to the clock.
There will then be a welcome and introduction from Eric Howden from the Redcar Branch of the Royal British Legion, and an address from the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland.
The programme of events includes local choirs and dance groups, cadet demonstrations, standard bearers and performances from the Lipsticks vintage trio.
There will also be a flypast from a vintage Lancaster Bomber at around 2.30pm.
