Two men have been handed prison sentences following a burglary at a property in Redcar.
Jewellery and money boxes were reported stolen in the burglary, which occurred on Coatham Road in October 2021.
An investigation carried out by Redcar CID led to the arrest of two suspects.
On Monday, a 42-year-old man charged with burglary and theft appeared in court and was sentenced to 30 months in prison.
A second man, aged 40, was sentenced to six months in prison for handling stolen goods.
Motorists are being warned of disruption in Redcar following problems with a level crossing.
The level crossing on West Dyke Road in the town is currently partially closed due to a fault with the barriers and Network Rail, which is responsible for the crossing, is working to repair the fault.
The road has been closed to motorists while the fault is being repaired.
The problems started at around 4.30pm today and long delays soon built up.
Crossing at the junction of Redcar Lane and Thrush Road also seems to be affected with buses having to be diverted.
Cleveland Police are appealing for information after a fail to stop sparked a chase in the Longlands area of Middlesbrough.
At around 10.12pm on Tuesday, a white Ford Transit van failed to stop on Roseberry Road in Middlesbrough.
This same van was then involved a collision with a police vehicle.
The van then crashed into nearby bollards and a parked car before coming to a stop, the driver leaving the scene.
Due to the van blocking the junction, it was removed from the scene as police enquiries continue into the incident.
Footage from the scene shows a Ford Fiesta which has been dented, broken stone bollards and skid marks along the road.
No arrests have been made at this time.
Anyone with information is urged to call Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
