Police are appealing for dashcam or doorbell footage after a dog walker was knocked over by a motorbike as he walked along a street in Middlesbrough early yesterday morning.

At around 3:45am yesterday the 33-year-old man was crossing Cranmore Road as he walked his dogs, when a motorbike travelling from the direction of Ormesby Road collided with him. 

He was left with a broken arm.

The dogs were unhurt.

The males on the bike came off during the incident but got back on the bike and made off.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who may have dashcam or ring doorbell footage is asked to call police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have had to close one of the beach slipways in Redcar.

The slipway which is closest to the Redcar Beacon, opposite Dundas Street, has been closed to the public.

The council says the slipway has sustained damage from the recent storms and has therefore been closed for safety reasons.

 

Police have praised drivers in Redcar after carring out testing as part of the Christmas Drink and Drug Driving campaign.

On Thursday, 178 drivers were tested for drink or drugs on the Trunk Road in Redcar.

None of the drivers were found to be driving above the legal limit.

As part of the ongoing campaign, officers are carrying out drink and drug drive testing across the Cleveland area in order to raise awareness of the serious consequences of driving whilst under the influence.
