Police have arrested five people after a suspected stolen vehicle reportedly failed to stop.
At around 12.45am on Friday, a grey BMW reportedly failed to stop for police on Cargo Fleet Lane and a short pursuit took place.
A stinger was used in an attempt to stop the BMW but the vehicle continued onto the A66 towards Stockton before it eventually came to a stop.
A 16-year-old, a 17-year-old, two 18-year-olds and a 19-year-old were arrested in connection with the incident and they have all been bailed pending further enquiries.
Police are appealing for members of the public to check CCTV after a burglary in Redcar.
The incident happened last Thursday at around 5am on Tenby Road, when a man walked into a property, before being interrupted by the victim.
He then made off empty-handed, along Newquay Road.
The man is believed to have been walking around the estate in the Tenby Road area before gaining access to the address.
The suspect is described as around 6ft tall, slim build, wearing a distinct bright blue windbreaker-type jacket with the hood up and he walked with a distinctive gait.
Officers would appeal to local residents in the area to check CCTV around that time for anyone matching the description.
Anyone who may have CCTV or information can contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
The volunteers of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were called into action at the weekend.
Just before quarter past four yesterday afternoon the Redcar Atlantic 85 was launched in response to reports of persons in the water off Marske.
The lifeboat stood down by the Coastguard once it was established that the report was a false alarm made with good intent.
Members of the public are reminded that if you think you see someone in trouble in the water you should dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
