A controlled explosion had to take place in our area at the weekend following the discovery of two potentially dangerous items.

Explosives experts carried out the controlled explosion on two items - believed to be WW2 hand grenades - which were found on farmland between Saltburn and Brotton on Saturday.

The explosion took place safely on Saturday evening after police warned the public were warned not to be alarmed if they heard loud noises.

Officers have thanked members of the public in the area for their understanding.

 

The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend.

Just before 7.30pm on Sunday the team were called by North Yorkshire Police following a report of a hang-glider possibly having been in difficulty in the Wain Stones area, south of Great Broughton.

The team undertook a limited deployment using a Team Land Rover and four members.

After checking out various tracks and vantage points nothing untoward was found and no other reports were received so the Police were informed accordingly.

Four Team members and a call-out officer were involved for approximately 3-hours, with a further 21 members on standby during that time.

 

Today is the final day that members of the public can leave a tribute in the condolence books for Her Majesty the Queen.

Condolence books in Redcar and Cleveland will re-open today until 5 pm, which is the last day as per the national protocol.

Members of the public can leave a tribute to Her Majesty the Queen in a Book of Condolence at Redcar Civic Centre, Saltburn Library, Loftus Town Council offices, Guisborough Parish offices and South Bank Library.
