A major road in our area was closed for several hours yesterday evening following a serious collision.

Emergency services, including the Great North Air Ambulance, were called to the scene of the crash on the A171 close to Charltons following the collision, which happened at around 4pm.

It is understood that a number of people had to be freed from vehicles by Cleveland Fire Brigade, before being stabilised by medical staff at the scene.

A patient was then taken to hospital by road.

Investigation work then took place before the road re-opened shortly before 9pm.

 

Residents on Teesside are set to see a rise in council tax towards policing - meaning Cleveland Police will face no cuts to its services and will maintain its recruitment of additional police officers.

On Tuesday evening the Cleveland Police and Crime Panel unanimously supported an increase to the policing precept of 4.47%, or £13 per year for a Band D property.

The Police and Crime Commissioner Steve Turner's proposed policing precept - which is the amount residents pay in their council tax towards policing - was supported by an independent panel.

With the majority of homes in Teesside falling in the A-C tax bands, most residents will pay less than the 27p per week increase set by the PCC this week.

The increase is expected to raise just over £2.1m, which will fund an additional 48 police officers for the force.

 

Police are searching for the owner of several items of clothing after they were discovered at the top of Huntcliff in Saltburn.

The items of clothing include a pair of socks, grey jogging bottoms, a red cap and a rosette.

They were discovered at the top of Huntcliff on Wednesday evening - with Cleveland Police saying they do not know who they belong to.

The force said it is treating this incident as a concern for the welfare of the owner at this time.

Anyone who has seen someone wearing these items, or any other information, is asked to get in touch with officers on the non-emergency number 101.
