A man and woman have appeared in court over alleged attack which saw a man allegedly shot several times with an air rifle.
Armed police units descended on a property on Langridge Crescent at Berwick Hills at around 10.45am on Thursday, following reports that a man had been shot with an air rifle.
Cleveland Police confirmed the man received injuries to his arm, hand, and back; these were not believed to be life-threatening, but further details about the injured man's condition are yet to be released.
A 41-year-old woman and 42-year-old man have now been charged with Section 18 assault and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday morning.
A third person was released with no further action.
Local MP's have urged Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to scrap new parking charges across Redcar and Cleveland.
Simon Clarke the MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, and Jacob Young the MP for Redcar, have written to Redcar and Cleveland Council leader, Mary Lanigan, urging her to reconsider proposals to introduce and increase parking charges across the borough.
Under the proposals, new charges would be introduced at Westgate in Guisborough - which currently is free for two hours with a disc - and at the North Road car park in Loftus which many residents use to access the nearby doctor's surgery.
If the proposals are approved, it could also cost 50p to park at drop off points on Skelton High Street and Windy Hill in Marske.
It could also cost visitors to the newly launched Land of Iron Museum in Skinningrove £2 for an hour rising to £8 for all day and Kirkleatham Museum near Redcar £1.20 for the first hour rising to £4.50 all day.
A number of other local councillors from our area have also signed the letter.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are inviting residents to have their say on budget proposals.
Like many councils up and down the country, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are facing a significant shortfall in funding due to rising cost pressures from inflation and increasing demands for council services.
The council has put together budget proposals to allow it to deliver services and make sure that it can continue to provide help and support for those who need it most throughout our borough.
