A drug dealer caught with cocaine, cannabis and cash after the car he was travelling in was spotted acting suspiciously has been jailed for three years.

Steven Ford was arrested on June 5 with 71 zip-lock bags of cocaine and three large bags of cannabis – all worth £1,420 – after police pulled the car over in Redcar.

The 23-year-old also had £135 in cash and a large canister of nitrous oxide seized by officers.

Ford, of Lothian Road, Middlesbrough, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and a Class B drug.

He was sentenced to three years in prison for both offences and three months consecutive for breach of a suspended sentence.

 

A new car park opens in Loftus today, the first scheme delivered by the Council as part of the wider Loftus Masterplan, to transform Loftus Town Centre.

The Handale Car Park located to the south of Loftus Police Station will feature 35 parking spaces close to Loftus High Street, with 3 additional spaces for disabled parking.

The project was a response to the lack of sufficient parking spaces in the centre of the town, and will provide much needed space for High Street customers and businesses, and will complement the only other existing car park located at North Road.

 

Redcar and Cleveland College has officially launched a new football pitch with the help of ex-football star.

David Wheater, who formerly played for Oldham Athletic as a defender, kicked off the opening by cutting the ribbon.

Players from Whitby Town Football Club's first team took to the field soon after for the first kickabout on the pitch.

The all weather pitch is set to provide the ideal training facility for the college's students and young people, and will serve the wider community in an attempt to increase sports participation.
