Two men have been injured in a car crash in Normanby.

On Tuesday police closed part of Flatts Lane and fire crews and paramedics had to be called out.

A driver and passenger in a blue Vauxhall suffered either arm or leg injuries.

But both of the cars involved have now been recovered.


The council have agreed to maintain the area's mobile library service after a public consultation.

They're planning on developing it as a support centre for customer advice.

They've also agreed to keep open Loftus library and Roseberry Square library for 31 hours a week instead of the proposed 14 hours.

The council are also considering more options to cut costs like using electronic book readers.


Cleveland Police will be carrying out random alcohol and drugs tests on drivers from today.

It's part of a national campaign that will last until theend of the month.

Its aim is to raise awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence, one of the main causes of fatal crashes.

Last year 90 people in the area tested positive for driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.

Anyone who suspects someone of drink or drug driving can report them to Cleveland Police on 101.
