A cannabis farm has been discovered by Middlesbrough Proactive Team officers at a property on Marton Road.

Three rooms containing 116 cannabis plants were discovered, believed to be worth up to £97,500.

The plants have been seized after officers attended the property on Marton Road yesterday morning.

A 23-year-old man located inside the address was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and abstracting electricity.

He was taken into police custody.

The electricity supply had been tampered with, creating a potentially dangerous situation which could have possibly led to a fire.

This has now being made safe by personnel from the electricity board.

Anyone who may have information regarding drugs activity in our local area is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A set of toilets in Redcar which were damaged in a fire have been re-opened.

As we reported on Zetland FM last week, the toilets, at the Redcar Beach Base on Redcar sea front had to be closed due to an arson attack which took place last Wednesday night.

One toilet was targeted, but unfortunately the waterpipe was damaged, meaning that all toilets had to be closed.

However, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has now announced that the toilets are back open to the public after the fire damage was repaired.

The council has thanked residents for their patience whilst the repair work was carried out.

 

A neglected paddling pool in our area is in line for refurbishment, according to a local councillor.

In a post on social media, Councillor Jade Lavan, who represents the Zetland ward in Redcar, said the pool, off the Stray, remained “popular and well used” during the summer.

However she said it was neglected and in need of repair.

Councillor Lavan says that the plan is to re screed the entire pool surface and apply a specialist paint for swimming and paddling pools.

All of the works are subject to the weather, but will be scheduled to be completed as soon as practically possible, hopefully before the peak of the summer for everyone to enjoy.
