Suspected stolen caravans have been recovered in a police “spring clean” in South Bank;

Marske Medical Centre is set for closure;

...and Saltburn is attempting to break a world dancing record next month.

Suspected stolen caravans have been recovered in a police “spring clean” in South Bank. A day of action on Friday saw 

Cleveland Police and other agencies scouring the area. Focussing on vehicle issues such as in garages, abandoned cars, 

unauthorised road signs and illegally parked vehicles, they also looked at other issues including animal welfare and 

illegal scrap disposal. 

Two caravans and a Land Rover were later recovered, all thought to be stolen.


Marske Medical Centre is set to close in June. 

Health chiefs say they can't find anyone to take over after the last medical company to run it went into administration. 

A contract with South Tees Medical meant the GP and nursing services could run until May this year, but a lack of interested 

companies means it’ll close on the 30th of June.

Patients will get a letter sometime in the next week explaining how they can register with nearby practices.


An attempt to break a world record in waltzing next month heads to our area! 

Age UK Teesside is hoping to smash the record by dancing their way along Saltburn pier and promenade on the 19th of May.

The record is currently held by Bosnia who managed to get one thousand five hundred and ten couples waltzing in 2007.

The event has been organised to celebrate "loving later life" and help to raise awareness of the loneliness elderly people face.

It also coincides with the Full Of Life Fair in the town on the same day.

Organisers are looking to get two thousand and seventeen couples strutting their stuff next month. 

The event is for people of all ages and all dancing abilities - including those with two left feet!
