A major road in our area which has been closed due to roadworks has re-opened this morning ahead of schedule.

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have confirmed that work to carry out essential maintenance on the westbound carriageway of the A174 Lazenby Bypass has now been completed.

The westbound carriageway has now reopened for traffic, a week ahead of schedule.

The council has thanked motorists for their patience while the work was being carried out.

 

Around 2,000 people of all ages joined together for a peace march for Palestine through Middlesbrough.

Organised by Tees Valley Muslim Council, the event was held so Teessiders could join together and show their solidarity for the people of Palestine - calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Organisers said the aim of the event was to stand up for a humanitarian cause and advocate for a peaceful resolution. 

They say they also want the British Government to facilitate a ceasefire and provide aid in Gaza.

Cleveland Police have confirmed that the protest passed without incident.

 

A new memorial honours German crew members who were killed when their plane crashed in Eston Hills in 1941.

The Eston Remembrance Group (ERG) joined forces with Year 5 and Year 6 students from Bankfields Primary School and Normanby Primary School to design the memorial.

On March 30, 1941 a German bomber crashed on the hills of Eston resulting in the deaths of the four crew and three of whom remain on the hills as only partial remains were found.

The memorial has temporarily been put up in the Eston Remembrance Garden for people to see and understand the story behind it.

It will later be moved to the crash site to mark the location where the four airmen died.
