A has been arrested in connection with a report of a New Year assault outside a pub in Eston.
The incident was reported to have taken place near to The Beacon pub at around 1am on New Year’s Day where a man in his 20s sustained serious facial injuries.
A 24-year-old man was arrested at the weekend at a local address and officers further arrested him on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs after an amount of cannabis was allegedly discovered at the time.
He was released on conditional police bail regarding the alleged assault and drugs offences while enquiries continue, however the man also had his prison licence revoked and he was therefore taken back to prison.
It's been announced that Redcar library will no longer be moving location.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have decided to keep the library where it is, until it can be relocated to a new purpose-built venue in Redcar Town Centre, as part of the Redcar Town Deal plans.
Following extensive consultation and feedback from the public and library users, the library will remain in its current location on the ground floor of Redcar and Cleveland House.
A state-of-the-art library and cultural hub is planned as part of the Redcar Town Deal which will provide a welcoming space with access to digital technology, information, services and learning in the heart of the town centre.
The project is due for completion in the summer of 2025.
The winning names have been announced after young people from across Redcar and Cleveland took part in a competition to name the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council's new street sweepers.
The council’s seven new street sweepers will be named 'Obi-Wan Cleanobi', 'Trusty Dusty', 'Orlando Broom', 'Clean up Clarence', 'Sweepasaurus Rex', 'Sweepy Jean' and 'Clean Cleo'.
The winning names will now be displayed on the side of the new sweepers so residents can look out for them as they clean the streets around the borough.
Each of the wining entrants have received a £20 book voucher for their successful submission, kindly donated by the street sweeper supplier, Hako.
