A boy was taken to hospital after a collision in Hemlington yesterday evening.
The incident happened on Stainton Way and police reportedly closed off the road for a short time.
A spokesperson from North East Ambulance Service said that they were called at 4.50pm yesterday afternoon to reports of a road traffic collision involving a child on Stainton Way in Hemlington.
An emergency ambulance crew were sent to the scene and took the patient to James Cook Hospital.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council's Cabinet is to consider a report which sets out its financial plan for the coming years.
The report proposes a balanced budget for 2022/23 and a draft Medium Term Financial Plan through to 2026/27.
The report considers pressures on service delivery and proposed additional investment to improve residents' lives in the borough.
The Council is facing continuing financial pressure to meet significant increasing demand for both adult and children's social care. Additional investment is also anticipated to deal with increased volumes of waste and to meet inflationary increases in prices for processing recyclable waste.
The report outlines how the 1.25% increase in national insurance rates from April 2022 will add to the council's pay bill along with predicted inflation levels.
The expected significant rise in energy costs will also put pressure on its finances.
Police are appealing to trace a potential victim, who is reported to have been sexually assaulted.
The incident is reported to have happened between midnight and 1:30am on Saturday 27th November in Flares and Popworld on Albert Road in Middlesbrough.
A woman is believed to have reported the incident to door staff, however, her details are not currently known.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and common assault. He has now been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
Detectives are keen to speak to the woman and would urge her to call them on the non-emergency number 101.
