A pipe that tumbled onto the A66 last week has finally been removed by a crane.
The westbound carriageway was forced to close on Wednesday last week after the 20-metre "pipe" - which has now been confirmed to be a gas heat exchanger - tumbled onto the road between Cargo Fleet Lane and North Ormesby.
The industrial object churned up the road leaving a trail of destruction, with repair costs described as "considerable" last week.
Last night the 40-tonne "pipe" was hoisted away by a crane.
The huge object was lowered onto a low-loader, before being secured and driven away.
A man remains in a critical condition in hospital five days on from a tragic Guisborough crash.
The incident took place on Friday evening, on Middlesbrough Road near The Triangle and Co-op petrol station, when a BMW 5-series was involved in a single-vehicle collision.
Tragically, 37-year-old dad Kellam Hodgson was pronounced dead at the scene.
The other man involved in the crash, aged 35, was rushed to the James Cook University Hospital, and police have now confirmed that the man remains in a critical condition.
Flowers and tributes have since been left at the scene of the fatal crash.
Police are appealing after a collision on the Newport roundabout.
The incident involved a pedestrian and an unknown colour or make of car.
The 37-year-old male pedestrian suffered minor injuries and was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he was treated and released.
The driver of the vehicle reportedly stopped and spoke to the man before leaving the scene.
Officers are appealing to speak with the driver of the car or any witnesses who may have seen the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101.
