Police in Redcar have continued to deal with incidents of anti-social behaviour in the town this week.
On Tuesday Police Community Support Officers responded to calls regarding a group of youths being a nuisance in Morrisons and Playland Amusements.
After being moved on from both premises, one male youth was identified and was taken home to be spoken to in front of his parents.
The rest of the group were identified through CCTV and AS13 warning notices were issued.
On Wednesday evening nuisance youths once again gathered at McDonalds and Tesco, being verbally abusive to staff and refusing to leave.
However a fast response from police officers quickly dispersed the group.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to a collision involving a Volkswagen Touran and a pedestrian.
The incident happened at around 3.10pm on Tuesday on the Newport Bridge approach road in Middlesbrough.
The 63-year-old male pedestrian suffered a fractured collarbone and head injuries.
He was taken to James Cook University Hospital for treatment and is no longer in hospital.
Any witnesses to the collision are asked to contact PC Paula Metcalfe-Smith from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101.
Carpentry and Joinery students have been getting into the festive spirit to help do their bit for a good cause.
The Level 1 team from Redcar & Cleveland College turned their hand to crafting reindeers and snowmen to sell at the Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice Christmas Lights Switch On.
Putting their crafting skills to the test, the group of 12 students used leftover log and branch cuttings, provided by a local tree surgeon, to create 25 reindeers and 15 snowmen.
The Christmas decorations proved a sell-out with the team raising an impressive £460 for the charity.
