A major road in our area is set to remain closed after a large pipe fell from the back of a lorry.
Emergency repairs are underway to the A66, between Cargo Fleet Lane and North Ormesby, after the 20-metre pipe fell from the lorry and left craters in parts of the road yesterday.
Police closed off the road with traffic from the A66 being diverted up towards Borough Road in Middlesbrough.
Motorists have been urged to avoid the area, and while Cleveland Police confirmed there were no injuries, a time frame on how long repairs will last is currently unknown.
Police say that no crime was reported after a man was found injured in South Bank.
Emergency services were called to Normanby Road in South Bank on Sunday evening after a man, aged in his fifties, was found with injuries.
Images taken from the scene show an ambulance parked outside the former Princess Alice pub with officers and paramedics seen at the side of the road.
The North East Ambulance Service sent one specialist paramedic and an ambulance crew to the scene.
Police have now confirmed that the man was taken to hospital for treatment - and that no crime has been reported to police.
Services for children, young people and families in Redcar and Cleveland will be significantly developed through a transformation plan to be considered by the Council’s Cabinet.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is one of 75 local authorities nationally which have been given the opportunity to access significant funding to join up and enhance services delivered through transformed family hubs in our local communities, which aims to make sure all families can access the support they need.
The Council is set to receive almost £2.7 million over the three years of the programme to develop the family hub offer in conjunction with partner agencies. This will see a broader offer of support, longer opening hours and a service which will support children and young people aged 0-19, rather than 0-5 which it is at present.
Additional services would include midwives, Enhanced Maternity Support Workers, Family Action and other community organisations.
