Four men have been arrested and suspected class A drugs recovered after a vehicle was stopped in Grangetown. 

A Volkswagen Passat was stopped by traffic officers on the High Street Lackenby Lane around 4:10pm yesterday on Wednesday.

A bag of white powder was recovered, believed to be class A drugs and the four male occupants of the vehicle were arrested. 

All four have now been released under investigation, whilst enquiries continue.

 

A tough new public spaces protection order has come into force, to crack down on antisocial behaviour and the vehicle nuisance problem at Majuba Car Park and the surrounding Coatham development area in Redcar.

The PSPO has been put in place by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and will be enforced with immediate effect by both RCBC and Cleveland Police officers.

Those engaging in dangerous, nuisance or threatening behaviour, particularly relating to ‘car cruising’, can expect to be held to account - with a fixed penalty of £100 and a maximum fine of £1000 possible.

The order has become necessary after many incidents, including speeding and dangerous driving, intimidation, littering and urinating in public, were reported.

 

A local MP has called for speed cameras to be installed along an accident hotspot where 100 motorists exceed 90mph every day.

Simon Clarke MP met the Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner, Steve Turner, at the A171 Guisborough Bypass after a number of serious incidents on the route resulted in three deaths within a short space of time. 

Mr Clarke and Mr Turner spoke with experts from Redcar and Cleveland Council and the Highways Agency to examine potential measures to deter speeding motorists who put lives at risk every single day. 

One of the possible solutions discussed was the use of speed cameras - a move that would require £250,000 investment over a five year period.
