Falling tree injures two people at Saltburn

Redcar and Cleveland Council this afternoon closed two footpaths in Rift Wood in the Saltburn Valley after two people needed hospital treatment after a tree was blown down in the fierce winds.

The incident happened early on Friday afternoon on one of the paths through Rift Wood in the Saltburn Valley. One person was taken to hospital by ambulance and a second needed to be freed by the fire and rescue service and paramedics before being flown to hospital by the air ambulance.
