An alleged burglar has been arrested and charged after stealing christmas spirits in our area.

The 44-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with two burglaries in Loftus.

Redcar Neighbourhood Officers received reports of two burglaries at the Co Op and Harry Thomson’s Funeral Services in Loftus on Monday.

It was reported that £300 worth of alcohol was stolen from the shop and a drill was stolen from the funeral services.

The man appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday morning.

 

Work has begun on the construction of a £1millon roundabout scheme to open up a vital access to part of the South Tees Development Corporation site.

The scheme has been developed to meet the emerging needs of the South Tees Regeneration Programme and opens up strategic access to 350 acres of developable land.

The scheme will also open up access to 1.3 kilometres of valuable river frontage, pivotal to the redevelopment of the site, offering the opportunity for a major increase in port capacity.

This is the first construction project to be delivered by the Development Corporation.

It was originally developed by Redcar & Cleveland Council, and is being funded through the Tees Valley’s Combined Authority.

 

Ambulance bosses are again appealing for people in the North East to use their emergency service wisely in the run up to one of the busiest weeks of the year.

The festive period is traditionally a busy time for North East Ambulance Service (NEAS).

Last year, the Trust answered over fifteen hundred 999 calls on the last Friday before Christmas, around 200 more than it would usually receive on an average Friday.

Demand was also high on New Year’s Eve, when the service answered more than 1,700 calls on and on New Year’s Day, when they answered more than 2,000.

The service is now preparing for a busy weekend, followed by additional pressure over next week, particularly the last Friday before Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Eve.
