A man has appeared in court accused of two counts of assault, grievous bodily harm and of owning a dog dangerously out of control and causing injury.
34-year-old Carl Venis of Railway Terrace in Brotton appeared at Teesside Crown Court via videolink from Durham prison, on Thursday.
The offences are alleged to have taken place on September 21 this year.
The judge told Venis that he will stay in custody until his next court date.
His trial will start on October 10 next year.
The Staithes Coastguard have been called into action to search for a missing person.
The search on Thursday evening covered the coastal area from Skinningrove to Sandsend and included some inland areas.
Due to the large search area Redcar and Whitby Coastguard Rescue Teams were also requested to assist.
The search was postponed at around 3am due to poor weather conditions and recommenced at first light on Friday.
All areas from the previous evening were further searched and the search area was extended to include Whitby.
Thankfully at around lunchtime the person was found safe and well near Whitby and was returned home by officers from Cleveland Police.
The Redcar Garden of Remembrance received its official opening for the public at the weekend.
The Garden of Remembrance is currently used by the Redcar British Legion and military veterans for remembrance ceremonies.
Amongst the improvements made, the garden now features a wall mural depicting the armed forces which was painted by local artist Drew Allan, a sculpture by local artist Graham Anderton, a fence painted by the students from the Princes Trust, R&C College, a paved area for ceremonies and a Remembrance Wall where people can purchase an engraved plaque/brick slip with a message to commemorate a loved one.
