Seven people have been arrested following violent disorder in Hemlington in the early hours of yesterday.

At around 2.40am, officers responded to a fire in the Earls Court Road area.

Upon arrival, a police vehicle was damaged, and several officers were injured. 

One officer suffered a serious hand injury and facial injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment. 

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of causing Grievous Bodily Harm.

Three other men and two women have also been arrested in connection with the incident.

The Fire service and ambulance service also attended the scene.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

An animal rescue centre in our area has put out an appeal for help after receiving an electricity bill for more then nine-thousand pounds.

Maxi's Mates Rescue and Rehoming Centre, at Dunsdale, has launched an appeal on social media asking for donations after an alleged "glitch" meant that they weren't charged for electricity for months.

The centre - which is based between Redcar and Guisborough - said it is already "stretched" without the bill and is caring for a record number of unwanted dogs.

Since the appeal was published, more than 170 people have already donated and more than two thousand pounds has been raised.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are asking residents for their opinions on the future of library services in the area.

The council has launched a consultation to ask for residents' views on proposed changes to library services across the borough.

The consultation gives residents the chance to express their views on the future of the service.
