Cleveland Fire Brigade is encouraging residents to celebrate safely during one of the most monumental events in British Royal history taking place over the upcoming bank holiday weekend.
The Coronation of His Majesty The King and The Queen Consort will take place on Saturday at Westminster Abbey and with numerous local community events planned throughout the weekend, the brigade want everyone to stay safe whilst enjoying the celebrations.
Safety advice should be followed if getting the barbeque out.
Residents are also reminded to be mindful when parking and to park considerately to leave space for a fire engine or ambulance, which may need to come down your street for an emergency.
A new sign has been installed in our area promoting Redcar as being part of Yorkshire.
The sign has been put in place on Redcar Lane on the outskirts of the town last week.
The sign, estimated to have cost about £5,000, incorporates the famous Yorkshire white rose and describes Redcar as being on the North Yorkshire coast.
In 2015 Redcar and Cleveland Council began adding North Yorkshire to its postal address, changing letter headings and refreshing some road signs in a bid to cash in on the hugely successful Tour De Yorkshire cycle race which saw tourists flock to the county.
Local elections are happening across our area today.
Polling stations opened early this morning and close later tonight.
For the first time, if you are voting at a polling station, then you will need to make sure that you take photo ID with you, such as a driving licence or passport.
The results of the election are expected to be available during the day tomorrow.
