Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have once again apologised after refuse collections didn't take place in a number of places across our area.
The council says ongoing driver shortages and a significant number of vehicle breakdowns has had a knock on effect in the Redcar area and has resulted in a number of missed areas yesterday.
The areas affected include Kirkleatham Village, the streets surrounding Coatham Primary, the Low Farm Drive area and the West Dyke road area.
Crews will be dedicated to clearing yesterday's outstanding missed collections today.
The council has apologised for any inconvenience caused and thanked residents for their ongoing patience.
More than 80 people are at risk of losing their job at Teesworks.
The job losses are a result of the work of the South Tees Site Company being wound down as demolition works come to an end. As of February 15, 81 positions were identified at risk of redundancy.
The Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen has said that some people have already found alternative work. There have been ongoing consultations at the South Tees Site Company with representatives from the GMB and Community trade unions.
The South Tees Site Company was set up in 2015 by the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy to ensure the former Redcar Steelworks site was safe and remove hazards, however, this work will end by June.
Police are appealing for information after a moped was stolen in Redcar.
The moped had been reported as stolen in an overnight burglary in the Redcar area on Monday and was recovered by the town’s neighbourhood officers today.
Officers have thanked the public for their assistance, and are appealling for information anyone with information on who may have been responsible for the burglary to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
