Police are appealing for information after a woman's finger tip was bitten off by a dog in Guisborough.
The woman, aged in her forties, was walking her dog on King George V playing fields on Howlbeck Road on the morning of Tuesday 24th August when she stopped to talk to another dog walker.
Both dogs were let off their lead, when the man's dog immediately attacked the woman's dog. In trying to get the dog away, it bit the woman on the finger, leaving her without a finger tip and requiring surgery.
The dog has been described as a female Staffordshire bull terrier, around 3 years old, and it was brindle with a white chest.
Officers are keen to trace the male and the dog. The male is described as white, around 5ft 8" tall, bald and "well built". The man spoke with a South Yorkshire accent and was wearing jeans and a T-shirt.
Police would appeal to the owner of the dog to come forward or any witnesses to the incident to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
Plans for a 5000 seat arena have received support from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
The council has paused development on the Coatham Bowl site to allow the company proposing a new arena on the site to prepare a business case and planning application.
The site has been earmarked for car parking under the Council’s detailed plans for the seafront at Coatham.
The Council will continue with a planning application for parking on the site, but if this is successful, no work will take place during the remainder of this year to allow Coatham Arena Ltd to prepare the business case and planning application, along with a feasibility study to demonstrate whether the proposed arena and the necessary parking can be accommodated on the site.
Redcar and Cleveland residents will be able to have their unwanted bulky items removed by the council once again from next Tuesday.
Bulky waste collection services - along with garden waste services - were suspended in July due to Covid-related staffing issues.
Garden waste collections resumed during August, and now, the council are pleased to announce the resumption of bulky waste collections too, with appointments available for booking from Tuesday 7th.
Residents are able to dispose of bulky items free of charge by taking them to the Dunsdale Recycling Centre; however, if this is not possible, council collections can be arranged for a charge by ringing 01642 774774.
