A two women have been charged following an alleged knife-point robbery in Hemlington.

46-year-old Christina Youll, of no fixed address, appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday accused of the offence.

41-year-old Joanne Baillie, of Elmhurst Gardens in Hemlington, was also been charged and also appeared at the court.

Both women are accused of a robbery at The Viewley Centre, in Hemlington, on Tuesday.

Cleveland Police detectives launched an investigation into the alleged incident, which occurred around 10pm.

The force has also confirmed no one has been injured although a member of staff at the store is said to have been left 'shaken'.

Ms Baillie is also charged with assault by beating of an emergency worker.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has confirmed the extent of damage at the Saltburn Cliff Tramway following a fire last month.

Images revealing the extent of fire damage to the iconic, grade-listed Tramway have been released, along with more information about the destruction caused by the blaze.

A fire caused by an electrical problem at the Tramway on January 16th led to serious damage to the electrical pump room and other internal fire damage and it's now been revealed that a full rewire will be needed.

Initially the Council said it was “too early to say” if the Tramway would re-open for Easter - however further inspections have now shown that the damage is such that it will definitely not reopen at that time.

No reopening date has been set.

 

More bin tagging trials have got underway in Redcar and Cleveland.

The trials could mean that more households could see items put out for recycling rejected if they are contaminated with the wrong items.

A trial scheme last autumn on Normanby’s Guildford Road estate saw the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council’s recycling team reviewing each blue bin due to be collected to check for contaminants - for example takeaway boxes, nappies and food waste - before refuse wagons arrive.

In such instances bins were tagged with information on what should and shouldn’t be put in them 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.

Sampling showed that contamination levels were cut as a result.

Another trial began in Redcar last month and will run through until March 6th.

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.
