Cleveland Fire Brigade have issued a stark warning after young children were spotted walking on ice in our area.

The stern message put out after crews attended an incident at Hemlington Lake yesterday.

Firefighters spotted a number of children trying to walk on ice when they arrived at the scene to rescue a dog that had already fallen into the freezing waters.

The brigade says that frozen ponds and lakes may be very tempting to walk or play on but members of the public should stay well away and not put yourself or anybody else in danger. 

In particular children should be made aware of the dangers of walking on the ice following the tragic events in Solihull last weekend.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have announced that they are proposing to temporarily move Redcar Library from Redcar and Cleveland House to the ground floor of Tuned In! on Majuba Road in the town.

The relocation is being proposed as part of the ongoing drive by the Council to ensure efficiencies and value for money and to continue to provide essential services that are valued by residents.

The temporary re-location to Tuned In! is planned to be in place until mid-2025, when the library would occupy a brand-new facility in the town centre as part of the Redcar Town Deal development.

The relocated library would continue to provide a safe and welcoming environment and the current opening hours will stay the same.

 

34 drivers stop checked by officers in Cleveland during the ongoing national drink and drug drive campaign were found to be under the influence of drink or drugs.

Since the beginning of the campaign at the end of November, roads policing officers have carried out numerous stop checks of drivers throughout the Cleveland area. The total number of stop checks will be collated at the end of the campaign.

15 drivers were found to be over the legal limit for alcohol and 19 were found to be driving under the influence of drugs.

Other alleged offences identified include two drivers with no insurance, one who failed to provide a specimen of breath and one who was issued with a fixed penalty for not wearing a seatbelt.
