105FM :: Local Radio for Redcar & Cleveland

A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Wednesday 5th October 2016.


The remnants of what is believed to be a cannabis farm have been found dumped next to one of the major roads in our area.

The equipment was found at the side of the A174 between Kirkleatham and Lazenby.

The items which had been dumped included white plastic sheeting, dried up plants and bags of compost.

A distinctive smell was also reported.

The incident follows a similar discovery in a field near to Guisborough last month.

Cleveland Police’s Central Drugs Unit are now investigating.


A fallen tree caused disruption to motorists after it blocked a road in our area yesterday morning.

The tree was obstructing Wilton Lane, which connects Wilton Village with Guisborough, just outside the village after falling overnight.

Redcar and Cleveland Council removed the tree from the scene, and the road was reopened shortly before 9.30am.

Traffic returned to normal once the obstruction had been cleared.


Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have announced their support for the Turning the Tide Festival, which is being held to promote World Mental Health day this Friday.

The event is taking place between 10am and 2pm in Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart.

The event will provide information on improving mental wellbeing and mental health first aid.

There will also be an opportunity to talk to local organisations who can offer support.

Dr Mona-Lisa Kwentoh from the Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust, told Zetland FM more about the event.
