Police are appealing for witnesses after a Loftus car crash left two people in hospital;

South Bank and North Ormesby walk-in centres close this week, meaning hours will be extended at Redcar Hospital;

...and over 100 motorists have been found to be risking their lives by not wearing a seatbelt over a week-long campaign organised by Cleveland Police.

Police are appealing for information after a burglary at Ormesby Club and Institute on the High Street in Middlesbrough.

The burglary occurred between 6pm on Monday 20th March and 10:30am this Monday 27th March.

During the incident extensive damage was caused to the property and lead was stolen from the roof.

It is believed that a member of the public may have witnessed two males acting suspiciously at the time of the incident and officers would like this witness to come forward as they may be able to assist with enquiries.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone who may have information regarding those responsible is asked to contact Detective Constable Joanne Williams on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.


Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses after a car crash in Loftus left two people in hospital.

The incident took place on Sunday evening at around 20 past nine when a silver Renault Scenic and a red Renault Clio collided on Zetland Terrace.

A passenger in the Scenic was taken to hospital with a fractured leg and back injuries and another passenger was also treated for a back injury.

The female driver of the Clio suffered a fractured wrist and a sprained ankle and was also taken to James Cook Hospital.

A man has since been arrested on suspicion of drink driving and dangerous driving but has been released on bail.

Any witnesses are asked to contact PC Sandra Dent on the non-emergency number 101.


The public are being reminded that the walk-in centres at South Bank and North Ormesby close this week, meaning that hours will be extended at Redcar Hospital.

From Saturday the Minor Injury Unit in Redcar will open from 8am to half nine in the evening, seven days a week.

Eston Grange and Resolution Health Centre will close on Friday before the new system starts.

Instead of going to the centres patients are advised to call 111.

Anyone wanting to see a doctor out-of-hours should call their GP Surgery to make an appointment at one of the new extended hours centres, including Redcar.

Other extended hours centres can be found in East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton, North Ormesby Health Village and the One Life Centre in Linthorpe.
