A former part of Redcar's iconic steelwork plant has been demolished in a controlled explosion.

Over the last few months, the clearing process of the former steelworks has been underway on the Teesworks site, with the famous blast furnace demolished back in November.

The latest buildings to be brought down on the site were four large stoves which were connected to the blast furnace.

The 40m high structures were demolished yesterday morning just after 9.30.

They are the final structures related to the Redcar Blast Furnace to be brought down.

 

A woman has sadly died following a crash near to Whitby.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance, were called to Upgang Lane yesterday after a small white Citroen car collided with a road sign.

Ambulance and fire crews rushed to the scene, at around 9.30am, alongside police - but despite the efforts to save the driver's life, she sadly died.

Her family has been informed and is receiving support.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have confirmed that Redcar's boating lake will shortly be filled with water.

The popular attraction, close to the seafront, has been empty for the past few months attracting criticism from residents who have been left wondering what is happening to the historic facility.

Now the council has put out a statement on its social media pages confirming that the lake, on Majuba Road, was emptied out as part of a routine maintenance programme which has included the replacement of its pump - which is used to fill the lake with water.

Tidal flow is used to fill the lake and the council says it now needs more than one tide to fill it up.

High tides are expected later this week when it is expected the lake will be filled once again.
