A man has been taken to hospital after a crash on a busy road in East Cleveland.
The incident happened on Friday on the A174 at Apple Orchard Bank, near Skelton.
Emergency services were called to the scene at Marske Lane at 12.30pm and the road remained closed into the afternoon following the two-vehicle collision.
A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said the accident involved a Volkswagen Golf and another unknown vehicle.
The volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend.
We were contacted by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust yesterday morning with a report of a woman who was potentially unconscious after having fallen from a horse, approximately 3-miles north of Rievaulx Abbey. An air ambulance was also deployed.
Two Team Land Rovers and a number of team members were dispatched to the area but as the first of them arrived the female casualty was just about to be loaded into the YAS ambulance which had managed to get relatively close to the scene.
She was then transported to hospital for further checks and treatment for her potential injuries.
A £1.6 billion plan to repurpose Britain's largest gas storage facility for undersea hydrogen storage has been backed by Redcar MP, Jacob Young.
Located 19 miles off the East Yorkshire coast, a proposal to convert the huge Rough reservoir to store hydrogen - just as it did with gas - is being explored.
Bosses at Centrica Storage are asking the Government to deliver a funding mechanism for the overhaul to help provide a solution for the intermittent nature of both production and demand, while creating 350 permanent jobs and protecting hundreds more.
Thousands could be supported in construction, with new platform, pipeline and wells required. It is envisaged that construction roles could peak at 1,000 at Easington and offshore, with a further 1,000 in the local area over a three to four year period.
