Work on the Teesworks investigation is expected to "kick off in earnest" next week following the appointment of a panel by the government.
Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove has appointed the panel to look into the South Tees Development Corporation and Teesworks Joint Venture, with chief executive of Lancashire County Council Angie Ridgwell appointed as lead reviewer.
The three-person panel will consider allegations of corruption, illegality and wrongdoing, alongside the governance and financial management.
A report of the panel's findings, along with any recommendations, is expected in the summer.
A flat in Guisborough is to be closed for three months after neighbours were subjected to months of abuse, a court has ordered.
Teesside Magistrates agreed that the rented flat at Helmsley House the town be closed after hearing reports of more than 30 incidents of anti-social behaviour including theft, shouting abuse, begging, assaults and violence towards residents.
The tenant in the property had received multiple warnings by Cleveland Police, landlords and the Local Authority which had been ignored.
Incidents of anti-social behaviour involving the tenant recorded from June last year to May this year included fighting with a disabled person in the street, stealing kitchen knives from a property and trying to sell stolen goods around the flats.
The application to the court was made by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council with the support of Cleveland Police and the landlord after months of evidence gathering by anti-social behaviour officers and police.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action in our area yesterday.
Just before half past midday the team were requested by the ambulance service to support one of their crews en route to a report of a woman with a lower leg injury after a fall on land approximately 2-miles south-west of Glaisdale village.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopter also attended.
After assessment and treatment the casualty was loaded onto an ambulance scoop-stretcher and carried by Team members for approximately 100-metres up a grass slope to a waiting land ambulance for onward treatment at hospital.
