Police are appealing for witnesses after a cyclist was injured in a collision in Marske.
At around ten past nine on Monday morning a blue Citroen C1 and a cyclist in a bright pink jacket collided on the roundabout between High Street and The Wynd.
The 65-year-old woman who was riding the bike was taken by ambulance to James Cook University Hospital with a fracture to her lower back.
The woman driving the Citroen was unhurt.
Investigating officers are asking witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage of the incident to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
The contents of a council refuse wagon had to be emptied in the road by the crew yesterday after a fire broke out.
The bin collection crew had to empty the entire wagon to stop a fire from spreading.
The fire is believed to have been caused by one of the many electrical items which were in the load, including a microwave and hair straighteners. There was also a gas canister amongst the rubbish.
Now the council is asking the public not to put electrical items in your household and recycling waste bins, as they can cause fire and put people at serious risk.
Anything larger than a kettle or toaster can be taken to Dunsdale tip or can be collected as part of our Bulky Waste Collection service.
Two men have been arrested after a teenager was stabbed outside a Middlesbrough nightclub.
An 18-year-old was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after the attack near Atik on Zetland Road in the town centre at around 3am yesterday.
A 19-year-old man and a 20-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. They both remained in police custody on Wednesday.
A police cordon was in place on Wednesday morning on Zetland Road, at the entrance to the nightclub.
Cleveland Police said enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information should call them on the non-emergency number 101.
