The driver of the vehicle, believed to be a white Nissan, left the scene and officers are appealing for this person to contact them.

Officers are urging anyone with information or any relevant dashcam footage to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

A month-long campaign aimed at raising awareness of the four main causes of fatal road traffic collisions has taken place across Teesside.

Whilst the majority of drivers were found to be obeying road traffic laws; 902 drivers were identified as committing offences throughout the course of April, by carrying out one of the four main causes of serious and fatal traffic collisions - either using a mobile phone whilst driving, speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or not wearing a seatbelt.

During the campaign, 22 drivers were found to be using a mobile phone whilst driving, 71 drivers were found to be under the influence of drugs, 50 drivers were found to be under the influence of alcohol, 743 drivers were found to be speeding and 16 people were found not wearing a seatbelt – including two children under the age of 14.

 

It's been announced that two local beaches have won awards for their exceptional quality.

Saltburn and Redcar beaches have been celebrated by Keep Britain Tidy for their exceptional quality.

The beaches have been given Seaside Awards in the 37th year of the awards, meaning they have met high standards for cleanliness, safety and water quality.

The assessment criteria for the beaches includes safety provisions such as first aid and lifeguards when necessary, accessible environmental information, and effective environmental management, addressing issues like waste disposal and littering.
