The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area.
The Team was called out yesterday afternoon by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust to go to the aid of a woman who had fallen and injured an ankle in Newton Wood below Roseberry Topping.
A number of Team members attended, together with a paramedic.
The casualty was soon located and subsequently helped into one of our Team Land Rovers and driven to a waiting ambulance for treatment.
The incident lasted just over one-hour.
Police are continuing to appeal after a man suffered a broken jaw in an assault in a Middlesbrough bar.
The incident happened around 3am on Bank Holiday Monday, 29 May, in Flares on Albert Road, Middlesbrough.
A 23-year-old man had to undergo surgery for two fractures to his jaw after being punched by another man.
He was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he underwent surgery and is now recovering at home.
The suspect is described as a white male, aged around 40 years old, short, stocky and with dark hair.
Detectives are investigating and would appeal to anyone who may have seen the incident or anyone who may have information, to call Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
A two-week long campaign aimed at raising awareness of seatbelts saving lives began yesterday.
As part of the campaign around the importance of wearing a seatbelt, officers will particularly focus on drivers and passengers who are not complying with the law around wearing seatbelts.
The campaign is led by the National Police Chief's Council with the aim of educating people on the dangers of not wearing seatbelts, and where police think it appropriate, they will take enforcement action.
Failure to wear a seatbelt carries a fine of £100.
If prosecuted, the maximum fine could be anything up to £500.
You can also be fined up to £500 if a child under 14 isn't in the correct car seat or wearing a seat belt while you're driving.
