Police officers from neighbourhood teams across Eston, Redcar and Guisborough along with the police drone unit carried out a drugs warrant in Grangetown yesterday.

The warrant, on Birchington Avenue, followed information on the occupant allegedly carrying out drugs activity.

Following a search of the address by officers and a drugs dog, a large amount of suspected cannabis and crack cocaine was seized, along with weapons including a machete, sword and loaded crossbow.

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and was taken into police custody.

 

Police are appealing for information after an attempted aggravated burglary in Redcar.

At around 7.30pm on Thursday evening four males attempted to force their way into an address on Westbourne Grove in the town.

It was reported they were all wearing balaclavas and were armed with bladed weapons.

The occupants kept them out of the address and the men left in a red Ford Fiesta.

No one was injured during the incident and nothing was taken from the address.

Anyone with information, CCTV or dash cam footage which could help police is asked to contact Redcar & Cleveland CID via the non-emergency number 101.

 

It's been revealed that Redcar and Cleveland Council has bought the old Marks and Spencer store building in Redcar High Street.

The Local Democracy Reporting Service understands that the building will be demolished as part of the £25m ‘Town Deal’ plans to rejuvenate the coastal town.

The council has not disclosed what it paid for the freehold, with a spokesman describing it as "commercially sensitive at this time".

However the property, which has dual entrances from the High Street and The Esplanade, was previously up for sale on the open market with a guide price of £1.29m.

The M&S store, which closed in 2014, will make way for a scheme linking the High Street with the seafront which will provide an events space and allow existing and pop-up businesses to trade outdoors.
