The jury in the trial of a boy accused of shooting a 62-year-old man from Guisborough, has been discharged.

Alan Garbutt's body was found in his second floor flat in Helmsley House in the town, in the early hours of August 8th last year.

A 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denies murder.

On the third day of the trial at Teesside Crown Court, Judge Charles Bourne discharged the jury and said that a re-trial would go ahead.

Barristers will meet on February 3rd to set a new trial date.

 

It's been announced that Redcar library will no longer be moving location.

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have decided to keep the library where it is, until it can be relocated to a new purpose-built venue in Redcar Town Centre, as part of the Redcar Town Deal plans.

Following extensive consultation and feedback from the public and library users, the library will remain in its current location on the ground floor of Redcar and Cleveland House.

A state-of-the-art library and cultural hub is planned as part of the Redcar Town Deal which will provide a welcoming space with access to digital technology, information, services and learning in the heart of the town centre.

The project is due for completion in the summer of 2025.

 

The winning names have been announced after young people from across Redcar and Cleveland took part in a competition to name the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council's new street sweepers.

The council’s seven new street sweepers will be named 'Obi-Wan Cleanobi', 'Trusty Dusty', 'Orlando Broom', 'Clean up Clarence', 'Sweepasaurus Rex', 'Sweepy Jean' and 'Clean Cleo'.

The winning names will now be displayed on the side of the new sweepers so residents can look out for them as they clean the streets around the borough.

Each of the wining entrants have received a £20 book voucher for their successful submission, kindly donated by the street sweeper supplier, Hako.
