A man has been arrested after a gun was found on a field in Grangetown.
Police received a report of what was believed to be a firearm discharge on a field on Birchington Avenue around 12.35am yesterday morning.
Officers attended the scene to carry out a full area search and those searches continued throughout yesterday.
A firearm was recovered from the scene and a 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area.
Just after 4.30pm on Saturday afternoon, the team received a call from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service to assist them with a 25-year-old man who had sustained a wound to his right leg whilst in woodland near Clay Bank, south of Great Broughton.
He was reported as being on a steep grassy slope some 200-metres into the woodlands.
Two Team Land Rovers were deployed whilst Team members were called out to a rendez-vous point at Clay Bank car park.
From there they made their way to the casualty approximately 600-metres away.
Team members assisted the paramedics with treatment and pain relief and when ready the casualty was packaged in one of our casualty bags and lifted onto a mountain rescue stretcher which was then ’sledged’ down to the roadside and a waiting ambulance which took the man to hospital.
Residents in our area have slammed plans for a car wash in the car park of a disused pub.
An application to turn the old Normanby Hotel car park into a jet wash and valeting business has been lodged with Redcar and Cleveland Council.
However local residents say it will be totally out of character for Normanby, and will cause chaos at an already very tight and busy junction.
The proposed car wash would operate seven days a week, from 9-5pm, offering jetwashing and valeting services.
The council has received more than 90 objections.
