A trial date has been set for five men charged in connection with alleged violent disorder in Hemlington.

The five men, whose ages range from 22 to 36, will appear before a jury at Teesside Crown Court on May 20th this year.

It follows an incident in the early hours of Sunday, November 26, in which a police vehicle was damaged and several officers were injured while responding to a fire on Earls Court Road, at around 2.40am.

Pictures from later that morning show a car, which had been destroyed by a fire, stood on its bonnet.

All five men have now appeared at Teesside Crown Court for the charges linked to the alleged disorder.

 

A bin tagging trial in Redcar and Cleveland which aims to stop contaminated loads and improve recycling rates is set to be extended.

A trial scheme last autumn on Normanby ’s Guildford Road estate saw the council’s recycling team reviewing each blue bin due to be collected before wagons arrive to check for waste contaminants - including the likes of takeaway boxes, nappies and food waste.

In such instances bins were tagged and went uncollected with council officers then visiting to speak to the relevant householder to explain why and what items need to be removed for the next collection.

The council says contaminated bin loads cost hundreds of thousands of pounds a year affecting large amounts of good quality recyclable material otherwise collected in bin wagons.

 

The next Cost of Living Crisis community drop in session is taking place today.

The drop in session is being held at the Westmorland Centre, on Westmorland Road in Redcar, between 10am – midday.

Residents are invited to go along to the Westmorland Centre anytime between these hours to chat to representatives from Redcar and Cleveland Citizens Advice, Redcar and Cleveland Mind, Redcar & Cleveland Family Hubs, Warm and Well Moneywise and Health Improvement.

Staff from each of the organisations will be on hand to let you know all about what they do and how their services can be of benefit to you.
