The family of a missing man have been informed after the body of a man was found in our area yesterday evening.
A man’s body was found in woodland near to Cleveland Retail Park yesterday afternoon.
Whilst no formal identification has yet taken place, police have informed the family of missing Dennis Richardson.
72-year-old Dennis was last seen in the area of Westbourne Grove in North Ormesby around 9am on Monday 5th December and was believed to have been headed towards the area of the Riverside Stadium/Middlehaven Shopping Precinct or South Bank Road in South Bank.
Officers say that their thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
Residents from an East Cleveland village have been left disgusted after vandals damaged two Christmas trees and removed a wooden sculpture.
The incident took place on Wednesday night when at least four quad bikers caused damage in Lingdale.
Two sets of lights have been damaged, one from a tree at Lingdale crossroads, which was provided by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, and the other at Little Moorsholm roundabout, which was from the local community.
Only one set of lights, at the crossroads site, now works.
The sculpture, which was of a hare named Harry, was located on Stanghow Road at the southern entrance to Lingdale and was carved by Staithes sculptor Steve Iredale.
The artwork was only installed in October and was dubbed the unofficial mascot for the village.
Planning permission for the major redevelopment of the Grade II listed Redcar Central Station has been granted.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s regulatory committee approved the project today (Thursday 8 December) meaning the historic railway building at the heart of the town centre will be restored to its former glory.
Conservation works to transform it from an empty, dilapidated building into a vibrant, welcoming gateway to the town will commence in spring 2023.
The building will function both as a leisure and retail hub as well as a key transport link, providing rail facilities including ticket machines, travel information and covered waiting areas.
