A man has been arrested after an incident which left another man in hospital.
Paramedics and police were called to Percy Street in Middlesbrough last Friday after reports of an assault.
At the time, part of the street was taped off and a 41-year-old man, who suffered a head injury, was taken James Cook University Hospital.
The force has now confirmed that a 52-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and bailed whist enquiries continue.
Parking on Marine Parade in Saltburn is to be improved to allow more cars to park during busy periods.
More than a hundred extra spaces, including six disabled bays, will be created during works which are expected to start towards the end of September.
This will be achieved by widening the road and repositioning the angles in which cars park on the seaward side of Marine Parade.
The works will be done in a phased approach, so visitors can still park further along Marine Parade during this time.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council says it also intends to introduce a 20mph speed limit along Marine Parade and adjoining streets and to consider lowering speed limits elsewhere in the town.
This will reduce vehicle speeds and will aid safe turn movements and help to improve the flow of traffic.
Police have donated twelve pedal cycles to be used as part of a local cycling group led by an addiction support agency which assists people with their recovery.
Twelve unclaimed bikes which have been recovered by police were donated to a group of people who access the service Recovery Connections in Middlesbrough.
The groups' aim is to provide access to bikes and educate people to both maintain bikes as well as organising cycle rides as a group.
Having appealed unsuccessfully for more bikes to be donated locally, the organisation then approached police for help.
Twelve unclaimed bikes from the Force's property store were then donated for use by the cycling group.
