Zetland FM Local News - 11th Jan 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for 11th January 2016.
Police are warning the public to make sure their vehicles are secure, following reports of vehicles being entered overnight across Redcar.
The common factor in each of the incidents is that there is no damage to any of the vehicle or the locks, which usually indicates that the vehicles have been left insecure.
On Saturday morning, police also received a report of the theft of a vehicle where it would appear that the keys were left inside the car.
Posting via their Facebook page, Redcar Neighbourhood Police Team have urged to the public to lock cars and vans and to not leave valuable items inside on show.
They are also urging motorists to check that vehicles are left locked and secure as it only takes a thief a few seconds to enter and steal property.
The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat was called out in the early hours of yesterday morning after a person entered the sea at Redcar near to the Park Hotel on the Esplanade.
The police contacted UK Coastguard who then paged the lifeboat crew at 3.26am.
As the crew was assembling the coastguards were informed that police officers on scene had recovered the person from the sea and the lifeboat launch was cancelled.
The person involved was taken to hospital by ambulance.
Marske United are through to the fourth round of the FA Vase competiton, following a last minute winner on Saturday.
Marske have been unable to play on their waterlogged Mount Pleasant pitch for several weeks, so they decided to switch their tie with Team Northumbria to their opponents’ ground. They were rewarded with a 2-1 win and a place in the last 32.
Adam Wheatley’s header from a corner have Marske the lead in the first half, before Team North levelled through Paul Antony, who ran through and beat Robbie Deane in the Marske goal.
In the second half, with Marske running out of stream and the possibility of extra time looming, Adam Preston scrambled in the winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
Marske are now away to the winners of the tie between Newton Aycliffe and Atherton, which has been re-arranged for this Tuesday evening.
