Police are appealing after a robbery at a pizza shop in Dormanstown.
The incident happened around 11:20pm on Thursday, at Joey's Pizzeria on Ennis Square.
A man entered the store and made threats with weapons believed to be potential firearms, before making off along Broadway East, in the direction of Hill Crescent, with a small amount of cash.
The suspect is described as male and around 6ft tall. He was wearing a red mask covering his nose and mouth, a grey hooded Adidas top, a dark blue quilted gilet, blue stonewash jeans, white trainers and black gloves.
Anyone who may have seen this male around the area of Ennis Square or Dormanstown is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
Northumbrian Water say that they are continuing repairs in Saltburn after a damaged pipe caused raw sewage to spill out onto the beach last Thursday.
Repair work on the damaged pipe at Cat Nab car park is expected to continue into next week.
Teams from Northumbrian Water have been working to fix the damage and have released an update on the repair.
In it, they say that the repair is proving a lot more complicated than originally thought, due to a combination of the location of the pipe, its depth underground, and the specialist fittings required for it.
The team are currently digging almost five metres into the ground to expose the pipe and assess what fittings are needed for the fix. Once this is done, these fittings will need to be manufactured specially.
Work in the riverbed also needs to take place, which will require the watercourse to be dammed and diverted.
A mini sewage treatment works, built from scratch last Saturday, is helping protect the environment while the teams carry out repairs.
Officers are reminding members of the public to keep their vehicles locked and valuables out of sight after a number of vehicle break-ins were reported to Cleveland Police.
In the Redcar and Cleveland area alone, 52 vehicle break-ins have been reported since the beginning of the year.
A number of items have been stolen; usually suspects target vehicles for items such as small change, mobile phones and wallets.
Police would advise that all valuables are kept out of view or removed from the vehicle; and glove boxes can be left open and parcel shelves removed to clearly show that there are no valuables in the vehicle.
