105FM :: Local Radio for Redcar & Cleveland

Redcar and Cleveland Council says it welcomes confirmation by the Government of an independent review of its financial position;

A man has been charged with a public order offence after allegedly throwing a brick at local authority street wardens;

...and a man has been charged after two reported burglaries in Middlesbrough during the week.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Council says it welcomes confirmation by the Government of an independent review of its financial position.

An 'external assurance reviewer' will visit the authority to provide a detailed assessment of its finances and management by the end of the month and will make recommendations on where improvements can be made.

The Government says that eight councils - including Redcar and Cleveland - who had previously received "exceptional financial support" would be subject to an external assurance review.

In Redcar and Cleveland's case the review was one of the conditions the council had to agree to when it received a ring-fenced revenue grant worth £3.6m earlier this year intended to provide support towards the costs of recovering from a major cyber attack in February 2020.

 

A man has been charged with a public order offence after allegedly throwing a brick at local authority street wardens. 

The alleged incident happened on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough on Wednesday. 

A 30-year-old man was arrested and later charged and is due to appear in court on Friday 16th July.

 

A man has been charged after two reported burglaries in Middlesbrough during the week.

On Tuesday police received reports of alleged burglaries on Acklam Road and Barnaby Avenue, allegedly resulting in money being stolen. 

A 47-year-old man was arrested and later charged with two counts of burglary.

He appeared in court on Wednesday and was remanded in custody.
