Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery which occurred near to Cleveland Retail Park at the weekend.
The incident occurred at around 9.45am on Sunday, when the 55 year old male victim was walking along a path in the field directly opposite the retail park, across the road from the Trunk Road.
He was approached by two male suspects believed to be in their early 20s – one was described as white, wearing a blue Nike cap, dark grey hoody and blue jeans and the other was described as Asian, wearing a dark blue t-shirt and blue tracksuit bottoms.
The man had a knife held to his throat and the suspects stole his money, inhalers and a debit card before making off towards the Trunk Road.
The victim was left extremely shaken though physically unharmed.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police via the non-emergency number 101.
Motorists were stuck in slow moving traffic on a major road in our area after a car burst into flames.
Smoke billowed from the red vehicle, which was on fire at the side of the A66 in Middlesbrough.
Firefighters attended the blaze, near to the Hartington Interchange, to put out the fire, which occurred just after 4pm on Monday.
The road was partially blocked and there was congestion back to the South Tees Business Park.
The mobile vaccination 'Boro bus' returns to our area today.
So far about 1,400 mainly young people aged 16 and above have been 'jabbed' with the Pfizer vaccine on the bus which has been made available by Middlesbrough Football Club's MFC Foundation charity with the backing of manager Neil Warnock.
Now the bus is coming back once again with NHS support and will at Redcar & Cleveland College on Corporation Road, Redcar between 9.15am and 3.45pm today.
Anyone can simply show up for a jab, although the Pfizer vaccine has predominately been used for the under 40s.
