Police are appealing for witnesses, CCTV and dash cam footage after a report that jewellery was stolen from a woman aged in her nineties in a distraction burglary yesterday afternoon.

Detectives are investigating the incident which happened between 1pm and 1:30pm yesterday on Chingford Avenue in Berwick Hills.

A male suspect attended the address and gained access to the property.

He is described as a white male and was wearing a dark duffle jacket.  

Jewellery of sentimental value, including rings, were stolen.

Anyone with information regarding the male suspect or any witnesses who may have further information, are asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Saltburn has lost its coveted Blue Flag beach status due to a decline in bathing water quality.

The beach was the only one between Whitby, in North Yorkshire, and Roker, on the outskirts of Sunderland, to boast the internationally recognised certification, which is the gold standard among beaches and was awarded to 80 beaches in England last year after tests showed the water quality was 'excellent'.

While this year’s results won’t be announced until May, Keep Britain Tidy, which manages the certification process in the UK on behalf of the Foundation for Environmental Education, confirmed Saltburn is not eligible to apply this year.

Saltburn’s bathing water quality, based on samples previously taken by the Environment Agency, which calculates the results of tests, is now rated as ‘good’.

 

Parents of children in our area who are due to start at primary school this year are being reminded that applications close in a few days.

If your child was born between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019, you should make sure you have submitted their application for primary school for September 2023. 

The deadline for applications is this Sunday, January 15, 2023, which is the national deadline for primary school applications. 

You can apply for a school place through the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council website.
