A large number of cannabis plants have been seized from a property in Redcar.

234 cannabis plants were seized from the property on Brooksbank Avenue on Tuesday as part of Operation Endeavour to tackle serious and organised crime.

The warrant was executed by Redcar and Cleveland Neighbourhood Officers and a man aged 32 was arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and taken into custody.

Anyone who may have information regarding drugs activity in our local area is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council's Waste and Recycling team has been forced to make alterations to the services they provide due to a steep increase in the number of staff who are self-isolating.

The current regulations have meant 21 staff have started a self-isolation period this week alone, to add to employees who were already self-isolating. These include a high number of trained drivers who cannot safely be replaced by other staff.

As a result, with immediate effect, garden waste collections and bulky waste collections have been temporarily suspended.

However, bulky waste collections which have already been booked for this week will be collected at the weekend. 

Residents who have made bookings for Tuesday 20th or later will be contacted directly and refunds arranged.

Dunsdale Recycling Centre is continuing to operate, however, the number of slots available will be reduced.

Residents should still book their slots using the Council website.

 

Coastguard Rescue Teams from our area have been called into action yesterday to rescue a dog which had fallen over cliffs in our area.

Just after 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon the Redcar and Staithes Coastguard teams were tasked by the Humber operations room at Bridlington to reports of a dog over the cliff at Runswick Bay.

A rope rescue technician managed to retrieve the dog safe and well and reunite it with its owners.

Members of the public are reminded that you should keep your dog on a lead at all times when walking along a cliff, and if you see anyone in trouble on the beach or the cliffs yo should dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
