An alleged burglar has been arrested after stealing christmas spirits in Loftus.
On Monday, officers from the Redcar Neighbourhood Policing Team received a report of a burglary at the Co-op in Loftus.
It was reported that around £300 worth of alcohol was stolen from the shop.
Officers attended the scene and whilst investigating, a staff member from Harry Thompson’s Funeral Services approached officers and informed them that a man had stolen a drill from there.
Officers reviewed CCTV footage and quickly identified the man shown in the footage as allegedly responsible for both burglaries.
A 44-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of burglary in connection with the incidents and he currently remains in custody.
Police are asking for any witnesses to a collision in which a female pedestrian sustained a fractured femur to come forward.
The 77 year old lady was in collision with a Volswagen Golf outside Marks & Spencer at Teesside Retail Park, just before 9.40am on Monday.
She is in a stable condition in James Cook University Hospital.
The driver of the Golf, a man in his 80s, is assisting police with inquiries.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and who witnessed the collision is asked to contact PC Spencer Kindon of the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit via the non-emergency 101 number.
Students at Redcar and Cleveland College have been putting their creative skills to the test.
Students from the Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy and Hair and Media Makeup courses went head to head in a competition to showcase their talent.
Around 70 students from across the college’s hair and beauty departments took part in the competition with themes including avant-garde and fantasy.
The best performing students in the competition will go on to the regional heats of the Association of Hairdressers and Therapists competition in Newcastle.
