Police have arrested a 41-year-old man after a suspected burglary in Acklam.
The reported incident occurred at around 9pm on Sunday at a property on Hesleden Avenue.
The homeowner reported around 30 suspected stolen items.
The man was taken into police custody for questioning.
Police believe that the incident may be linked to another report of burglary at a property on Aldwark Close in Acklam, which happened at around 8.30pm on Tuesday, and are urging anyone with any information about either incident to contact them.
Police have announced a dispersal order in part of Eston after persistent anti-social behaviour.
The ban has been placed on Whale Hill in Eston.
It's not the first time such an order has been put in place. In 2019, dispersals in March and October, respectively, were put in place to stop large groups of youths who were behaving in an anti-social manner around Whale Hill and were caught setting fires in fields, and underage drinking.
The order came into place yesterday and will run for 48 hours.
Anyone concerned about antisocial behaviour in their neighbourhood should call police on the non-emergency number 101.
The Environment Agency has issued an update after dead and dying crabs and lobsters were washed up on beaches in Redcar and Cleveland and neighbouring areas.
The Agency says it has found no evidence of a risk to human health, but is urging beach users to exercise caution while its investigation continues.
People are advised to avoid affected areas of beach and coastline where possible and to make sure they wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water after coming into contact with any affected crustaceans.
People are advised not to touch any sick or dead crustaceans and keep pets away from them too.
Anyone who finds dead crustaceans or other dead wildlife, should report them to the Environment Agency on 0800 80 70 60.
