Zetland FM Local News - 4th January 2017
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Wednesday 4th January 2017.
A teenager has been charged in connection with a suspected revenge attack linked to the murder of Lee Pettite.
Police were called after a man armed with a knife turned up at the home of a relative of Luke Lovell just before midnight on New Year's Day.
Lovell was sentenced to life in prison for manslaughter following Mr Pettite’s death.
But on New Year's Day shattered glass was left underneath a boarded-up window outside the home on Banksfields estate.
Now a 17-year-old boy has been charged with possession of a blade in a public place.
He will appear at Teesside Youth Court later this month and is thought to be an associate of Lovell.
Two men have been seriously injured after their car drove off a bridge and crashed into a field in Redcar.
The smash happened at Warrenby Bridge when the Ford Focus left the road and landed on its side in a field.
Emergency services were called to the incident at around 9pm on Monday. Two men were taken to James Cook Hospital with serious injuries.
A third man who was also involved in the crash was described as “walking wounded” and was not taken to hospital.
Fire crews also attended the incident and made the scene safe. Any witnesses to the crash are asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101.
And a former DIY shop could become Saltburn’s newest restaurant.
If plans go ahead the restaurant would create up to four full-time and two part-time jobs.
A planning application has been submitted to the council to convert the empty shop on Milton Street next to Real Meals café.
It has been empty since April 2014.
The planning application says the restaurant will “introduce a variety of food types to differ and complement other similar uses in the area.”
The application was made by Jonathan and Sarah Foster from The Zetland Group in Saltburn.
Their proposed opening hours for the restaurant are from 8am til 11pm, seven days a week.
