Further bin collection delays have been announced for residents in Redcar and Cleveland.
The council said that there were delays yesterday due to a continuing shortage of refuse drivers and a "significant number of vehicle breakdowns".
It meant not all bins presented were emptied during the usual refuse collections.
It comes just days after some bins weren't emptied during green waste collections at Skelton Green, North Skelton and some areas of Loftus, Carlin How, Liverton Mines and Skinningrove.
The council has apologised for any inconvenience caused and thanked residents for their patience.
A horse owner has been left devastated after a suspected arson attack at her stables.
Emergency services were called to the blaze at around 10.15pm on Monday at the stables off the A171 bypass, close to Guisborough.
Cleveland Fire Brigade sent two engines from Coulby Newham and Guisborough to the scene.
They spent over an hour extinguishing the blaze and returned to the scene yesterday morning.
The horses were moved to a safe location while police and the fire service carry out investigations.
A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police confirmed the incident is being treated as a suspected arson.
Middlesbrough neighbourhood officers executed two warrants in Hemlington on Monday.
Two properties in Fonteyn Court were searched in the early hours and police seized an air rifle at one of them.
While in the area, they spotted a 23 year old man on Cass House Road who they detained and arrested on suspicion of public order offences. He was interviewed and released, having been reported for summons for public order and resisting arrest.
Officers say that they will continue to act on crime and anti-social behaviour in the area and are asking residents to continue to provide information on the non-emergency number 101.
