Fire crews have tackled a blaze at a former school building in our area at the weekend.

Plumes of thick black smoke could be seen throughout yesterday morning, coming from the derelict building near Eston Leisure Centre on Normanby Road in South Bank.

It is believed the fire was contained to the one building, which is the former Archway School, which closed in November 2019 when the school moved from the old building to the former Teesville Infants School, on Learning Lane in Teesville.

Five crews from Middlesbrough, Grangetown, Redcar, Thornaby and Saltburn attended the scene as well as the aerial platform.

 

The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were called into action at the weekend.

Just after ten past eleven yesterday morning the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to assist a boat with four people on board which was broken down half a kilometre north of the South Gare lighthouse.

The boat was towed to safety in the River Tees.

The public are reminded that if you see anyone in trouble on the beach or cliffs you should dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

 

Police are appealing for witnesses and CCTV footage which could assist their investigation after a man was assaulted in our area, leaving him with serious facial injuries. 

The 52-year-old victim was assaulted outside the Hollywell View Public House in Liverton Mines between 10pm and 11pm on Monday 14th June.

The man was punched in the face multiple times and then his head and body was stamped on, leaving him with serious facial injuries which have required surgery.

A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and he has since been released on bail whilst enquiries continue. 

Any witnesses are asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
