Officers were called to a residential area yesterday following reports of a man with a blade.

Police and other emergency services vehicles were called to Acklam yesterday afternoon.

Police say they received a report around 2.45pm of a male seen possibly in possession of a bladed weapon in the area of Trimdon Avenue.

A full area search was carried out including use of the police helicopter.

Officers say that no one has been found with any injuries, and enquiries are continuing in an effort to locate the male and any possible weapon.

 

Refurbishment works have been completed at a popular East Cleveland museum.

A new three-storey extension, costing a total of £1.6m, has been completed the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum, which is now known as The Land of Iron.

A celebration event and handover ceremony was recently held at the museum, which included Trustees of the museum, and the staff from building company Tolent who successfully managed the build.

The new extension provides much-needed space for expansion as well as providing a link to the old mine buildings, making the existing space to be more accessible and designed particularly for wheelchair users. 

The upgraded museum is due to open to the public in the Autumn.

You can also pay your tribute to the queen via the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council website.
