Motorists in our area experienced delays yesterday as fuel protestors carried out a rolling road block on one of our areas busiest roads.

Those travelling on the A174 experienced delays in both directions as a rolling road block took place between Ormesby and the A19. 

The protest began at around 4.30pm with protestors having met at Lazenby roundabout 15 minutes earlier.

The protestors took around 30 minutes to travel towards the A19 before making the return journey.

It's not known how many vehicles took part in the protest.

 

The main access to the Redcar Beacon has been closed following reports of children climbing over the barriers at the top of the structure.

Officers from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have supported police who took action over the weekend to prevent people taking part in this extremely dangerous activity and are now considering options to prevent people climbing over the barriers in future.

The council says that the Beacon main access will remain closed until a solution is found.

However, the hospitality café and bar business operating on the ground floor is not affected and it is still possible to access the ground floor public toilet.

 

Officers are appealing for witnesses and information after a fail-to-stop collision in Middlesbrough.

The incident happened around 1pm on Saturday as a woman driving a blue Volvo waited to turn right onto Linthorpe Road from Parliament Road. The Volvo was hit from behind by a vehicle, described as a small blue vehicle.

The occupants spoke with the woman and stated they would exchange details before driving off without giving any information.

The woman sustained a minor back injury.

Officers are appealing for the driver to come forward, or any witnesses to the incident or anyone with information to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
