A 59-year-old man arrested in connection with a collision in Eston has been bailed pending further enquiries.
The man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving following a fatal collision in Eston on Wednesday, on Fabian Road near to Eston Labour Club at around 7:55am.
Pedestrian Michael Walsh, aged 76, sadly died after being taken to James Cook University Hospital.
Enquiries are ongoing and any witnesses to the incident or anyone with dash cam footage which may assist the investigation is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101.
The volunteers of the Redcar RNLI lifeboats have been called into action in our area following reports of a person in the sea.
Just after seven o'clock last night, the Redcar Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to carry out a search in the South Gare area for a person reported to be in trouble in the water.
An extensive search of the shore and the river mouth were carried out over the next few hours.
However no one was found and the lifeboat returned to the lifeboat station shortly before midnight.
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council are asking residents for their views on budget proposals for the coming year.
Like other councils around the country, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council say that they are facing significant pressure on budgets, caused, in the main, by the spiralling cost of providing placements for children in the council's care and the ongoing effect of high inflation.
They say that funding for councils is not keeping pace with these pressures on spending.
The council is proposing a number of measures to ease these pressures and help them meet their legal obligation to set a balanced budget.
