A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for 10th March 2016
Police are appealing for information in connection with a suspicious incident on the Trunk Road in Redcar.
The incident, which took place at around 1.25pm on Monday, involved a man and a woman who were having an altercation next to a white van on the A1085 Trunk Road near to Limerick Road.
It is unclear whether they both left in the white van that was beside them, but anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A memorial stone in tribute to Vera Robinson MBE was unveiled at Redcar Cemetery yesterday.
Vera, from Redcar, who was also a well-loved local historian, was one of the RNLI’s longest-serving fundraisers, and passed away last year at the age of 101. She was awarded the Freedom of the Borough in 2001.
Dorothy Ahmed is the secretary of the Friends of Redcar Cemetery:

Redcar and Cleveland is set to take the lead in promoting responsible dog ownership by hosting eight pet community roadshows throughout 2016.
Dogs Trust, in partnership with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, is delivering the roadshows throughout the borough which will provide basic health checks and advice, microchip checks and free dog bags.
The first roadshow will be taking place this coming Monday, March 14 at Emmanuel Church in Saltburn between 11am and 3pm.
The trust will be highlighting to residents that compulsory microchipping is becoming law in England, Wales and Scotland on Wednesday, April 6. This means it will be a legal requirement for owners to ensure their dog is microchipped by this date and the details on the microchip are kept up to date.
The trust will also be contacting local vets before each roadshow for offers and deals in order to raise awareness around affordable pet healthcare available locally.
Council officers will be in attendance to promote the council’s dog warden service and its hard-hitting “pick up the poo” campaign which aims to tackle dog fouling in the borough.
